Local Author Showcase

10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Event Details

Did you know that Solano County has many talented local authors right in our backyard? We want to introduce the authors to our library community! Stop by to chat with each author, purchase one of their books if you want, and get your book autographed! We will also be unveiling our Local Author bookshelf that will be a permanent feature at the Vacaville Town Square Library. This two-day event will also provide a Storytime, and a writer's workshop for kids. If you're an aspiring author, you will definitely want to check out our panel of local authors that will answer any questions you may have. It's going to be fun, so please join us to help celebrate our local authors!
