Holmes County’s Largest Book Signing 2013

This Saturday I headed up to the 3rd annual Holmes County Book Signing Event at the Gospel Bookstore in uptown Berlin. Several dozen authors were present to talk to visitors and sign their books. Eli (Small) Hochstetler, the owner of the book store (a.k.a. the Mayor of Berlin) puts a lot of time and energy into bringing authors of Amish related works to the area. There’s a great variety of books, including biographies, devotionals, novels, and a cookbook. Famous area photographer, Doyle Yoder, was also present, selling his 2014 Holmes County Calendar. Eli does a lot of promotion for this event. All products are twenty percent off and since so many people like to read, they make great Christmas gifts. There are both local area authors and quite a few from out of state. I find the authors to be quite interesting and have been able to get to know a good number of them. With so many of them present I didn’t have nearly as much time chatting with them as I would have liked to. Here are some pics and a complete list of the authors present at the book signing.
