Indy Author Fair Features Workshops and Activities for Book Lovers and Writers of All Ages

September 28, 2011

How does one become an author? How does one get published? What is it like to write a book? These questions and others can be answered at the Indy Author Fair, a full day of free, public activities including the opportunity to meet and greet dozens of Indiana authors on Saturday, October 29, 2011 at Central Library, 40 E. St. Clair Street. The day will include programs, one-on-one conversations, and book sales and signings with local, regional and national authors, all with Indiana ties.

Margaret McMullan, recipient of the 2011 Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award in the National Author category, will be featured in a "Meet the Authors" panel discussion at 11 a.m. where she will be joined by the Regional Author winner, Helen Frost, as well as finalists in the Emerging Author category.

The Indy Author Fair is one event of the Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award program, which seeks to recognize the contributions of Indiana authors to the literary landscape in Indiana and across the nation. The Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award is a program of The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation and is funded through the generosity of The Glick Fund, a fund of Central Indiana Community Foundation.

Indiana Authors Award recipients and finalists will be honored Saturday evening, October 29, at an award dinner/fundraiser at Central Library benefiting The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation.
