A couple of years ago, my niece and I visited the first local authors' expo at nearby Livingston County Library. Over a dozen authors took part, and I ended up purchasing several children's books that day, including Mary Rose and the Secret Horses by Connie Dow and Not Now, Razzle by Shelly Long.
My niece enjoyed her new books and I loved meeting the various authors. One kind gentleman even donated a copy of his book, North Missouri Mountain Biking, Hiking, and GPS Trail Guide, for my school's library.
Now the library is planning their second local authors' event, and my local writers' guild has been invited to participate.
I'm excited (and terrified!) to announce that I've registered to take my own book (books?) this year. Each author will have a table in the second-floor courtroom where they will have the opportunity to display and sell their books.
(I've never done anything like this. Hopefully a couple of people from my writers' guild will join me, or maybe I'll take a niece or two along for support!)
The event is scheduled for Saturday, April 27, from 10am to 12 pm at Livingston County Library. It is free and open to the public. See you there!
