Hi Rebecca,

I can point you to two organizations that have put on large author book fairs in the recent past:

The Wilsonville Festival of Arts (http://www.wilsonvillearts.org)

and the Oregon Historical Society  (http://www.ohs.org/shop/holiday-cheer.cfm)

Please message me directly if you'd like the contact info for the coordinators. 

If you'd like to include any children's/YA authors, please let me know and we at the SCBWI would be happy to assist you in planning this event.  SCBWI is the international professional organization that serves children's book writers and illustrators, and I am the Oregon Chapter's Library Liaison. One of my roles in this volunteer position is to help connect authors/illustrators and librarians who are planning events of this nature. I'd be happy to be a resource to you in any way I can. I will be at ALA Midwinter. If you are going to be there, too, we could plan a meet-up there, or during some other time that is convenient to you. I look forward to hearing back from you.

I'm thinking about holding a local author book fair this summer, but I've never done something like this and my initial research brought up bupkis. Has anyone held an event like this before?
