Library to Host Event for Local Authors May 17

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Virginia Beach Public Library will host an event to highlight the work of local authors on Saturday, May 17, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Meyera E. Oberndorf Central Library, 4100 Virginia Beach Blvd. The event provides an opportunity for local authors, including aspiring authors, those whose books are only online, illustrators and publishers to network with each other and chat with local readers, as well as join discussions on self-publishing and other topics. 

Authors may bring their books to sell and are responsible for their own sales. Authors are also invited to donate copies to Virginia Beach Public Library’s local author collection. Anyone interested in participating should call (757) 385-0150.


The event is free and open to the public.
