Go to the blog on the library's site to see the list of the authors who will be displaying at Local Author Day 2011. Unfortunatorily, Melissa and the Green Blanket is at the very bottom. However, it's a great looking list (20 authors or so) and an incredibly fun event. Hope to see some of you there!
April 9th is Local Author Day 2011 at the Gadsden Public Library. It's a free event for authors and readers alike, so it's a great opportunity to get to visit with all kinds of folks. About 100 people attended last year, not including the authors. Everyone loved it!
So, here are the specifics:
Gadsden Public Library
Lena Martin Room
254 College Street
Gadsden, AL 35901
2pm to 4pm
If you're in the area, feel free to come by and visit, have a cup of coffee, and maybe a piece of cake if it isn't already eaten up.
Books, authors, and readers all together in one room - it doesn't get any better than that!
