Second Sunday, Deschutes Public Library’s monthly celebration of northwest writers and the written word, moves to the Third Sunday for a special celebration of local writers. Taking place on Sunday, August 16, from 1–3pm the Local Author Fair gives Central Oregon writers a chance to share their work with the public.
“We’re happy to highlight several local authors who are both new and experienced,” says Chantal Strobel, manager of community relations at Deschutes Public Library. “We’ve had enthusiastic author participation in the previous years, and this year wanted to try something a little different in terms of format,” she continues.
The 2015 celebration of local authors will feature writers in a new format. This year each participating author—10 in all—will have his or her own table at which books can be displayed and offered for sale. The public will have an opportunity to meet and speak with the authors whose work piques their interest. Participants include authors writing fiction, non-fiction, poetry and more. The authors have confirmed and reserved their spaces; as such, there is not space available for drop-in participation by authors who have not already confirmed their spot.
Participating authors include:
Dina Bennett – Peking to Parks: Life & Love on a Short Drive around Half the World
Caryl Ann Casbon – The Everywhere Oracle: A Guided Journey through Poetry for an Ensouled World
Dave Edlund – Crossing Savage; Relentless Savage
Diane Goble – Beyond the Veil: Our Journey Home
Jodi Ellen Hall – The Secret of the Dragons Tears; Black Blade; Rise of the Red Witch
Edie Jones – Raising Kids with Love, Honor & Respect: Recipes for Success
Doris Knowles Pulis – How It Looks Going Back
Barbara S. Stott – Swimming Lessons: One Woman’s Journey to a New Life
