Local Author Fair – Meet Local Authors and Learn about Writing

Do you love to read, or perhaps you’ve been quietly working on your own book?  There’s a Local Author Fair coming up this Saturday. An event to meet some local authors, do some networking or just gather some autographs.

Local authors and book creators will be showcasing their work and discussing and selling their books. There will also be the opportunities for authors to network with each other and all current or aspiring authors can learn more about the business of writing and publishing.
