I’ve just signed up for a new event featuring artists, musicians and writers and others in Warren County, NJ.
It’s called “ParkFest.”
It’s being held in a park created around one of the locks of the famous Morris Canal.
I’m excited to participate because in the Frank Nagler Mysteries I use Dover in Morris County as the model for the fictional town of Ironton, relying on the region’s mining, manufacturing and canal history as part of the background.
Frank Nagler , the series’ lead character, is a native of Ironton, and his father worked in the stoveworks, and his grandfather was a miner.
Here’s the release about Park Fest::
We are looking for locally based authors to partner with us for a brand new event in Warren County – “ParkFest”. ParkFest is being co-hosted by Warren Park Foundation and the Morris Canal Committee and will be held on Saturday June 10 at Bread Lock Park (2627 Route 57, Stewartsville) from 11-6.
Our goal to bring together diverse interest groups from across the County and the region to meet together in a beautiful park. We have planned for ‘jazz in the park’, local history displays, art displays, classic cars and more.
We would very much like to feature the opportunity to a “meet the author”. If you are from this area or have written about this area, we would be happy to have you join us. Book sales are perfectly fine with us. If this is something you would be interested in participating in, please contact me and I will be happy to go over the details with you.
With your help, ParkFest can be a true community day – promoting the people and things that make Warren County so special.
If you are interested in participating, please call Liz at the Warren County Planning Department at 908-475-6539 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
