If you're near Oldham County, KY this Saturday, Sept. 24, come out to the first ever local author fair hosted at the library! I love our library, and am very excited to be able to take part in an event there.
This event is FREE to attend! Bring the kids and meet some great local authors of many genres.
Coming up on Saturday, October 1st, I'll be at the Ridgway Memorial Library in Shepherdsville, KY for their FIFTH annual author faire. This is an all day event, from 9 -5. Lots of wonderful authors will be there, including KY Poet Laureate George Ella Lyon, who will lead a workshop (registration required for a guaranteed seat) on using personal memories in your writing. Authors will also be reading from their books, so it's a great time to hear an excerpt in person! This event and the workshop are FREE to attend!
Where: Ridgway Memorial Library When: Saturday, October 1st, 9:00 AM–5:00 PM
