ReadLocal Author Fair
March 24 @ 1 PM

The Marion Public Library will host its 2nd Annual ReadLocal Author Fair on Saturday, March 24, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

It's a unique opportunity for readers to engage with authors, and the event highlights the talent in our own hometown.  It also serves as an excellent networking opportunity for aspiring writers to connect with others who share their passion.  

Quickly becoming a signature event for MPL, the 2018 ReadLocal Author Fair will be headlined by Marion’s own Abbie Roads. Roads, a local gem, is best known for her popular romantic suspense novels.  She will give a keynote presentation at 2:00 pm at the March 24th event, which will cover her experiences getting her work published, along with the successes, trials, and tribulations of being an author. 

Attendees will be able to purchase copies of books from participating authors for signing. Their books will be sold through the BookMarket, an in-house retail space administered by the BookMarks of Marion Public Library.  The event will run from 1:00 to 3:00 pm with the keynote presentation at 2:00 pm.

The inaugural event in 2017 featured 30 authors from around Ohio, including Cardington’s Mindy McGinnis, along with nationally published authors like Karen Harper and Lee Martin.
