Attend our Indie Author Fair!

(This event has already occurred.) Not all writers are represented by publishing companies. It isn’t like the movies where authors are pursued by editors to finish their latest novel before the nationwide book tour. Hollywood producers and directors aren’t waiting in the wings, name dropping movie stars who read and loved their books. This is the dream but far from the reality.

To reach as many readers as possible and make their writing profitable, some writers self-publish and they are eager to connect with readers in our community to share their stories. We call these writers independent, or indie, authors. 

It is not easy being an indie author and each year, libraries and readers honor the achievements of independent writers by celebrating Indie Author Day.

Celebrate with us! Meet our local authors on Saturday, November 5 from 1:30-3 p.m. at these branches:
