Swiss Days

This historic building in downtown Midway 
shows it's Swiss influence

On Friday I had a book signing at the annual Swiss Days celebration held in Midway, UT. The Festival began in the 1940's as a Harvest Days to celebrate fall and the bounties of the land. It later switched emphasis to a celebration of many of the immigrant's Swiss roots and became Swiss Days.

The two day festival features all sorts of performing arts, art, craft and food booths as well as a parade. This is the third consecutive year I have been invited to sign my books there at a friend's "Book Shoppe". I always enjoy getting out and talking with people and seeing how they respond to my work.
