Library Hosts 2nd Annual Local Author Showcase

The Nevada County Community Library is once again hosting a Local Author Showcase on Saturday, October 12th at the Eric Rood Administrative Center from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. This is the only book fair hosted by the library each year and is a chance for the Nevada County community to celebrate and get to know their local authors. Everyone is invited to this free event.

Chris Olander, Nevada County's Poet Laureate, will kick things off at 1:00 p.m. by reading selections from his work in the Eric Rood Administrative Center BOS Chamber. Immediately thereafter, attendees are invited to a panel discussion, "Nevada County Storytellers." Panelists will include Chris Olander, Leslie Rivers of Sierra Muses Press, Maria E Brower, author of many Nevada County titles, and Iven Lourie of Gateways Books and Artemis Books. Topics include what it is like to be a writer in Nevada County, resources available to both aspiring and established authors, and traditional and emerging options for publishing.

From 2:00 until 4:00 p.m., the event will shift to the Eric Rood Administrative Center Lobby, where local authors will be available to discuss their work, and many will have signed copies of their books for purchase. Free refreshments will be available. Participating authors write for all ages – adults, teens, and children. They represent a wide variety of genres and perspectives, including local history, self-help, humor, nature, poetry, historical fiction, romance, and mysteries.
