      I represent The Carlisle Naples, a retirement community in North Naples and handle the community’s public relations. The Carlisle Naples is planning a book fair Sept. 14 and would like to showcase some local authors who would be willing to speak about their book as well as sell books. When I found your association’s website, I thought you may be a resource for us to use to invite some authors. The general public would be invited as well as the community’s residents.

      We are also seeking a speaker for the event who would talk about memoir writing or getting started in journaling. Could we talk? I’ll better explain the event plans.
