If you missed out on the Somerset Library’s Pitchapalooza event then here’s your second chance. Pitchapalooza is back on Saturday, March 10th, at Farley’s Bookshop in New Hope, Pennsylvania. To register, visit Farley’s online, or call 215-862-2452. In the words of Pitchapalooza’s creators…

Five years ago, we created an event that has drawn thousands of people into bookstores, writing conferences and book festivals all over the country. It’s called Pitchapalooza, the American Idol for books (only without Simon) and it works like this: Anyone with an idea for a book has the chance to pitch it to a panel of judges. But they get only one minute. Eckstut and Sterry team up with two guest industry insiders to form the judging panel. The Judges critique everything from idea to style to potential in the marketplace and much, much more. Whether potential authors pitch themselves, or simply listen to trained professionals critique each presentation, Pitchapaloozas are educational and entertaining for one and all.
