Join local authors at the “Local Author Book Fair” on Sunday, August 23rd from 1-5 p.m. at the Brentwood Library. The event will feature 27 local authors.

Brentwood Library is pleased to host the event which will showcase local authors, while providing them a venue for local readers to connect with them. There will be screenwriting workshops, several authors are speaking about their books.

Authors will be provided a table to meet and greet, and sell copies of their books. Some authors will have a 30 minute segment to read from their book and respond to audience questions.

“I’m excited the Brentwood Public Library is putting on this event and giving readers the chance to mingle with so many local authors all in one place. There’s always such good energy that comes from being amongst others who share a love for the written word. And for us authors, I’m excited we have the chance to introduce those who may not be familiar with us to our work. I’m looking forward to the chance to make new friends and perhaps even some new fans,” local author Courtney Lynn Mroch (a.k.a. C. Le Mroch, horror nom de plume) shared. She has penned several books.
