Publishers, Artists, and Vendors

 

“Last year was our first year of touring, and the Kensington Day of the Book was one of our first stops. It was a delightful festival… I would like to say that there were some great exhibitors, but we were so busy with attendees coming to our table that I wasn’t able to go more than a few tables in either direction. Several of our authors were able to join us and they all enjoyed their experiences and many will be returning with us this year…in the charming downtown of Kensington to celebrate the Day of the Book.”
–  Keith Shovlin, aois21 publishing

Here are our 2018 Publishers, Artists, and Vendors! More coming soon!

Gival Press is committed to publishing fine literary works which provoke the reader to contemplate. Because we cannot publish all the manuscripts which come our way, we began an online journal: www.ArLiJo.com to feature the works of authors and poets as well as artists.
