On Saturday, April 24th at 2:00 p.m. in the Friedhof Building (1270 27 Ave.) the Columbus Public Library is sponsoring our annual Author Fair.
Stephanie Grace Whitson is the keynote speaker and her talk is titled, “Why Scarlett is Read”. She will ask the audience why Scarlett O’Hara is considered one of fiction’s most unforgettable characters. She will explain to us what “the girl we love to hate” can teach writers that will help them create their own unforgettable stories. Everyone is invited to come. If you can’t make it at 2:00 p.m. on the dot for the keynote, you can still come and listen to the authors do readings of their writings, browse the books for sale, visit with the authors individually, and taste some of the delicious homemade treats made by local business, “Feed Your Sweet Tooth”, wonderfully created by Samantha Kooyman. It will be a family fun Saturday afternoon with book interests for all ages. We have an awesome list of local authors scheduled to come and have booths for you to visit. To name a few we are expecting: Debra White, LoRee Peery, Mark Miller, Bonnie Lacy, and Joel Green.
