Meet Nevada County Writers at Library’s First Local Author Showcase

Library Logo

Nevada County may be known for mines full of gold, but these days we celebrate the wealth of our creative community. Around 30 of Nevada County's talented local authors will gather at the Madelyn Helling Library in Nevada City on Saturday, October 20th, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for the Nevada County Community Library's first Local Author Showcase. Everyone is invited to this free event.

Readings from Nevada County's Poet Laureate

Molly Fisk, Nevada County's Poet Laureate, will kick things off at 11:00 a.m. by reading selections from her work in the Library's Collaborative Technology Center (CTC) classroom. Fisk is appearing courtesy of the Nevada County Arts Council.


Panel Discussion: From Paper to Published in Nevada County

Immediately thereafter, local library supporter Lori Burkhart-Frank will moderate a panel discussion, "From Paper to Published in Nevada County." Panelists will include Fisk; Josh Weil, 2017 winner of the California Book Award for Fiction; award-winning young adult novelist Kim Culbertson; and Leslie Rivers of Sierra Muses Press. 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.


Meet and Great with Local Authors

From 12:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m., the event will shift from the CTC to the Gene Albaugh Community Room, where dozens of 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.


More Information

Information about participating authors is available at the Nevada County Community Library's website (follow the link under "Events"). For questions or further information, please contact Laura Pappani, Grass Valley Branch Manager, at (530) 470-2692 or laura.pappani@co.nevada.ca.us.
