Local Authors Showcase

A celebration of local authors, where readers can connect with the writers in their neighborhood!
Join us for a local author meet & greet, featuring local writers of all different genres—from poetry to local history, novels to children’s literature! At each event, we host a small group of authors from the area who are eager to meet you, their future reader, and tell you about their books.
