Twenty authors will be on hand to discuss their books and their love of writing. The event features a mix of traditionally published and indie published authors from a variety of genres. This popular local literary event takes place in the library’s Multipurpose Room from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Small Business Saturday, November 25.

Authors may submit an online application to be considered for the 2023 event. Authors need to have a website, be active on social media, and submit a high resolution head shot. Traditional, indie, and self-published authors are welcome to apply. Authors must be available to run their table during the hours of the event, provide their own method to sell books, take payment, and make change. The space is free for accepted authors. Over 100 authors apply each year, but only 20 can participate in the event. We like to have a diversity of genres with both new and seasoned authors represented.
