Dear 2018 Local Authors,

The event will be taking place on Friday, January 25, 2019 from 7pm to 9:30pm at Central Library @ Joan Λ Irwin Jacobs Common. The doors will open at 6:45pm.

The evening will begin with brief remarks from the Library Director, Misty Jones, and the Friends of the Central Library.

This is your time to shine! We encourage you to mingle with your peers and share experiences. Celebrate with fellow local authors. We hope you can join us for a memorable evening including refreshments, an open mic event, plus a few surprises!
