Everfest's Take

From the Organizer

Wordsmith Productions is pleased to announce the 2019 High Desert Book Festival on Saturday, October 12th in beautiful Hesperia Civic Plaza Park in Hesperia, California. We are proud to share that the event is co-sponsored by Hesperia Recreation & Parks District and the City of Hesperia. This is the fourth annual High Desert Book Festival. We are in the California Mojave High Desert, 90 minutes northeast of L.A., on the way to Las Vegas, and just 45 minutes from Big Bear and Lake Arrowhead. Once again, author/ publisher/ illustrator exhibitors will be able to sign up for either 10x10 or 10x20 booth to sell and market their books and book-related items and services. This year, we also have the option of authors registering for a table under a large communal tent sitting next to other authors. We will also have a Children’s Pavilion with storytelling, face painting and featuring talented children’s authors and illustrators. Stay tuned for more information about our Poetry Tent and Artists’ Village for visual artists. Our speakers to date are the talented comedy writer T.Faye Griffin (credits on “In Living Color” and writing for Steve Harvey) and directly from Australia, writer, counselor and motivational speaker John Saunders (One in Six). Registration information is located on our website at: for more information.
