Wayne Herndon forwarded the following press release about an event his company is sponsoring for numismatic authors at the upcoming ANA convention. Wizard is really going the extras mile to connect readers and authors - be sure to take advantage of the opportunity. -EditorWizard Coin Supply is the official supply dealer for the American Numismatic Association's World Fair of Money taking place in Baltimore from July 30th to August 3rd. Wizard plans a number of events during these five days to engage show attendees in the books and supplies side of numismatics. One such event is the Autograph Festival. Three separate programs will make up the Autograph Festival with the goal of connecting as many authors to as many readers for book autographs as possible. Wizard is sponsoring the Festival at no cost to authors or readers and the books need not be bought from Wizard to participate.
Program 1-Autograph Sessions at the Wizard booth. Wizard will organize and promote autograph sessions at our booth for authors willing to join us for a session (or two) during the course of the show. Authors can reserve their preferred half hour or hour time slot(s) with Wizard. Wizard will include the session in our promotional materials and dedicate space at the booth for authors to meet the public, sign autographs and chat with fellow numismatists.
Program 2-Autographs at Author's Booths. We recognize that many authors will be otherwise involved at the show and may prefer to autograph books at their own booths (either instead of or in addition to a session at the Wizard booth). For authors that advise us of their availability and willingness to participate in this manner, Wizard will include the author's name and booth number in Autograph Festival publicity.
Program 3-Drop Off Program. Wizard will also accept drop-off books for autographing by the author and then return them to their owners later in the show or via mail after the show. This program is ideal both for authors who would like to participate but prefer not to or unable to have an autograph session and also for authors who participate in Program 1 and want to have an option available for customers who are unable to be present for the session (due to auction or seminar attendance, not present at the show that day, etc.).
The three programs are not mutually exclusive. Authors are welcome to participate in any one, two or all three programs. Wizard will also offer a program to our mail order customers wherein books can be ordered before the show, autographed at the show through one of the programs described above and then shipped to the customer after the show.
Authors interested in participating in the Autograph Festival should contact Wizard Coin Supply at 703-738-4485 or info@WizardCoinSupply.com.
