Writer Workshop

Do you love paranormal fiction? Would you like to know more about the genre and its authors? You're in luck! Paranormal fiction authors Sharon Sala, Sonia Gensler, Tessa Gratton, Tara Hudson, and Steven E. Wedel are coming soon to a hometown library near you!

These authors will take part in Author Panel and Writing Workshop programs in your hometown libraries. Each program will feature one or more author. While the panels will be primarily aimed at teens, adult fans are also welcome to attend.


Hope your Summer thus far has been as wonderful as ours! We've seen record breaking numbers of readers sign up for Summer Reading, both in person & online. July looks to be just as busy.

This month our hometown libraries are offering author visits, Star Wars events, story times & so much more. Click on your hometown library to the right & get to planning your month!
