Upcoming Mountain of Authors Program

I'm excited about two library programs that I will be participating in this weekend. I'll talk about the first one in this posting and the second in my next posting. On Saturday, the Pikes Peak Library District will host its 2nd annual regional authors’ event, "Mountain of Authors" to showcase authors of the Pikes Peak region, and offer presentations about writing and publishing.

The free program will be held from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Saturday, April 12 at the East Library, 5550 N. Union Blvd, Colorado Springs, CO. No registration is required. This event will inspire new and established writers, and offer book fans a chance to meet and discuss their favorite titles with local authors. Panel discussions will be offered by nonfiction, fiction, children’s and teen authors. A free lunch and booksigning will also be held at the event.
