This past Saturday, the Clark County library on Flamingo had a book fair which featured local novelists and had about eight local book stores as venders (including my store and Comic Oasis). This is my second year participating and while I think it's a good time and like supporting events like this, I do lament that the turnout isn't greater than it is. Last year it was on a Sunday and I thought the low traffic flow was because of that day so I thought that this year's being on a Saturday would have result in a bigger turnout. There was people coming to the library and the event all day, but I'd think that even if the promotion for this event was just done via fliers in the valley's entire library system that more people would come out.
Mostly I was getting the word out to people that were there about the upcoming annual Free Comic Book Day, which is happening Saturday, May 3rd. I also passed out extra free comics to people that I had left over from previous years so hopefully more people will get turned on to the great storytelling medium that we call comic books!
Speaking of the Clark County Library on Flamingo, this November 6-8th, they'll be having a comicsfest and while all the details haven't been ironed out yet, the huge guest that they have confirmed is Neil Gaiman! A full list of guests and events for the comicsfest at this library will be a few months away yet, but I'll post updates as I hear about them.
