Now Accepting Applications for READLocal 2018

Local independently published (“Indie”) authors looking for a forum to meet the public are invited to register for the “ReadLOCAL Indie Author Fair” scheduled Saturday, September 29, at MidPointe Library, 9363 Centre Pointe Drive, West Chester, Ohio.

The popular program gives readers a chance to meet authors and ask about their writing processes and backgrounds. Visitors can also buy books and have them signed by the authors. There is no admission fee.

Authors will welcome visitors from 10 a.m. to noon in the library’s Community Room, said Martha Matthews, Information/Reference Programming Librarian.

The library is currently seeking local published authors who write for adult, teen and children’s audiences in the following genres : fiction, non-fiction, poetry, short story, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy, romance and graphic novel. There is no participation fee.

Authors who want to participate should fill out an application available here. Print applications will be available at MidPointe Library West Chester’s “Ask Here” desk. Forms should be returned by Wednesday, August 29.

This year the library staff is working in conjunction with other “Indie Author Day” organizers to promote the event.

The September “ReadLOCAL Indie Author Fair” will be the second for MidPointe Library West Chester. More than twenty authors attended the first program in 2016.
