4th Annual A Tale of Our City, Jersey City’s Book Festival, Presents 21 Authors –
The Most Ever!
A Mix of Established & New Writers, plus Entertainment Featured on Saturday, 9/10
“Nor rain… Nor rain… Nor rain…” There isn’t any reason to continue with that age-old statement on postal carriers’ perseverance, because not one…not two…but three torrential downpours interrupted this year’s book festival. Postal carriers would be proud of Jersey City’s tenacity!!!
In spite of all that rain, Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy and the Municipal Council, the Division of Cultural Affairs, and the Jersey City Free Public Library did proudly present A Tale of Our City, Jersey City’s 4th annual book festival, on Saturday, September 10, 2011 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., which was held at the beautifully Victorian and historic Van Vorst Park, across the street from the Main Library, 472 Jersey Avenue (at Montgomery Street).
Singer/songwriter Chrissy Roberts saved the day, in her impromptu (and brilliant!) idea to gather festival-goers under the safety of the gazebo, where she entertained them with several songs. The fun was palpable, with children – and adults! – joining in the audience participation. (Check out the videos of her performances!)
