Befitting its 10th anniversary, this Winter Institute’s signature Author Reception will be the largest ever. Thanks to the generosity of ABA’s publisher sponsors, more than 70 authors and illustrators will be on hand to chat with booksellers and to autograph new and forthcoming titles. To sweeten the occasion, ABFE will be hosting a silent auction of art from many beloved children’s illustrators in the Atrium across from the Grand Ballroom. ZaPow! Art gallery showcases "The Art of the Book," featuring pieces by local Asheville artists. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.
