There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you. - Maya Angelou
This unique celebration of writers, readers and books affords guests of all ages the opportunity to speak to a gathering of a diverse lineup of local and regional authors and purchase personalized copies of their works.
Are you an author? Do you know an author? Are you a fan of an author?
The Monroe County Library System is calling for authors interested in being part of Writers on the River on Sunday, November 11, 2018. The annual book / author event unites a diverse community of authors, illustrators, and (of course) readers in the Ellis Library & Reference Center's riverside expansion. There, authors spend the afternoon talking about, selling, and personalizing copies of their work.
Authors interested in taking part in the event should email the Ellis Library Manager at bill.reiser[at]monroe.lib.mi.us with a brief biography, any relevant links, and contact information before Monday, October 1, 2018. No phone calls, please. Expression of interest does not guarantee participation, as space is limited and an effort is made to assemble the most diverse array of authors and genres as possible.
More information on Writers on the River 2018 is forthcoming, including “pre-Writers” author events.
