60 Virginia authors came together at the American Legion Post 74 in Albemarle County today for a mass book signing.
The event is meant to showcase local and first time authors and garner some much needed publicity for writers who may not have the backing of a major publisher.
The event was organized originally by Jayne D'alessandro-Cox back in 2008, when she realized her problems as a first time author probably we not unique.
"It was very difficult to find places to do book signing so I thought that if i'm having that kind of problem, so is everyone else out there coming out with a book. So why not do it together and enjoy the process and hopefully everyone will sell books."
The event was co-hosted by the Literacy Volunteers, who promote reading and literacy in our community.
D'alessandro-Cox's new book is called 'Thomas Jefferson: From Boy to Man' and is about Jefferson's early years before he began advocating for a independent America.
