Indie Author Day @ the Keene Public Library

The Keene Public Library is pleased to announce that it will be participating in the first annual Indie Author Day on Saturday, October 8, 2016. This event, which will be hosted by libraries across the country, is designed to bring local writing communities together in their libraries to participate in author panels, book readings and signings, workshops, presentations, and more. The event starts at 10:30 a.m. with introductions. Panels and presentations will take place at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. There will be time to meet and great local indie authors throughout the day. Then, at 2 p.m. EST, everyone will join a digital gathering featuring Q&A with writers, agents, and industry leaders that will bring together the larger indie community.

As independent publishing becomes ever more popular, many authors still struggle to find an audience. Indie Author Day will offer an opportunity for local authors to make connections with readers in their own community and learn more about how to navigate the fast-changing world of self-publishing.

The Keene Public Library is currently looking for local authors who are interested in participating in the day’s events. Writers of all genres and of works for all age groups are welcome to join us. Participation is not limited to Keene residents; members of surrounding communities are more than welcome to take part. Anyone interested in participating should contact the library by calling (603) 603-352-0157 or emailing gzachariah@ci.keene.nh.us.
