After having to take 2020 off (how often have we all said that?), Local Author Fair is returning! It’s not going to be quite like our first event back in 2019, but we actually think it might turn out to be even better. Let me explain.
Just like our 2019 Local Author Fair, we are going to have over two dozen authors set up for folks to chat with and have the chance to purchase their work. We will also have three fantastic presenters talking about the craft and business of writing. But rather than doing it here in the library, we will be in Price Park.
You will be able to find the authors set up in the Washington and Fitzpatrick Shelters near the parking lots off West Maple Street. Near those shelters, the library will have a table with water and a free tote (while supplies last), as well as some books to check out. And then in a nearby tent, you will find our fantastic speakers: Amanda Flower at 11 a.m., Stacey Trombley at 12 p.m., and Marie Vibbert at 1 p.m. You can come for some or all of this, and hopefully pick up something great to read. You can see more about the presentations and a list of authors here.
Oh! And you are going to want to make certain you stop by and talk to lots of the authors. We will be having a drawing for some free books after the event, and to enter, you have to stop by at least 10 author tables. The books we’re giving away are:
- Characters & Viewpoint by Orson Scott Card
- Farm to Trouble by Amanda Flower
- On Writing by Stephen King
- Save The Cat! by Blake Snyder
- Trial of Thorns (Wicked Fae Book 1) by Stacey Trombley
- Galactic Hellcats by Marie Vibbert
(Those writing books are some personal favorites of mine, and the library will be hosting a writing discussion around the Stephen King book on October 14. See more about that here.)
Hope to see you in the park Saturday!
