Author Fair

Saturday August 6 @ 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

author fair

Learn about the recent publications of area authors from the writers themselves. The library’s main lobby will be filled with local authors showcasing their works and answering questions throughout the day. Eight authors will provide a brief presentation in the Yusunas Meeting Room during the event. Listen to excerpts from their books, ask questions, and interact with each author. Copies of the books will be available to purchase.

This event is free to attend and open to all. Drop by any time to visit with the authors!
