Mechanicsburg, PA -- Friday November 1, besides being All Saints Day, was First Friday in this borough -- an evening to emphasize the arts. Sunbury Press, the trade publisher headquartered on West Main Street, participated with a program of six authors from a variety of categories. The author readings ran from 7 to 9 PM. Sunbury's showroom was packed with patrons -- standing room only. Many people lingered on the street outside in order to listen in. Following are some pictures from the event:
