The upcoming virtual event marks one of the many firsts achieved by the supported self-publishing and book marketing company.

In the ongoing pandemic, the company has moved from just following the trend of virtual events to actually organizing and hosting one.

The Festival of Storytellers, which is set for April 23-25 and April 30-May 02, marks ReadersMagnetís transition from being a mere exhibitor at many national and international book events and a provider of self-publishing and marketing services to being an organizer of an online book festival.

Book fairs and trade shows are important for not only authors and publishers but the reading public as well. However, the year 2020 saw the postponement or cancellation of many outdoor in-person events, such as trade fairs and exhibitions. Other book events, such as the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) Annual Convention and the New York Library Association (NYLA) Conference & Trade Show, pushed through by switching to online events.

Only a few organizations would consider actively engaging authors and the public through original initiatives such as The Festival of Storytellers, amid the pandemic.

More than just a new initiative to promote and cultivate a love and culture of reading among peoples, The Festival of Storytellers is ReadersMagnetís way of thanks to all authors and booklovers who helped keep the spirit of sharing of stories alive amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In the new virtual book festival, everyone gathers to share stories and experiences, discuss ideas, inform, inspire, and know each other.

What is there for the attendees at The Festival of Storytellers? Attendees can expect:

  • Interactive author networking opportunities
  • Live keynote speakers and workshops
  • Virtual book exhibition area
  • Giveaways and virtual author meet & greet
  • Access session recordings post-event

As of this writing, over a hundred authors have confirmed their participation by registering for free through the festival website

The Festival of Storytellers will be made worthwhile by ReadersMagnetís partnership with Book Aid International, UKís leading international book donation and library development charity. Even though the event is free, donations are encouraged to provide books and support libraries in Africa and around the world, serviced by Book Aid International. Donate today through
