Saturday, October 9, will be a big day for authors in Indianapolis. From 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library's Central Library, 40 E. St. Clair St., Indianapolis, will host the Indy Author Fair. The fair includes programs on how to publish and market books, as well as an opportunity to obtain signed copies from more than 40 talented Indiana authors.
I will be at the Indy Author Fair along with the other nominees for the 2010 Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award, which will be presented at a gala dinner on Saturday evening at the library. From 11 a.m. to noon I, along with the other nominees, will discuss our writing and connection to Indiana in a special "Meet the Authors" program in Clowes Auditorium. After the program, the nominees, along with other Hoosier writers, will sign copies of our books from noon to 2 p.m. in the Simon Reading Room and R.B. Annis West Reading Room. A complete list of the authors involved in the signing is here.
I am a Regional Finalist for the Indiana Authors Award, along with fellow nominees Andrew Levy and Colleen Coble. I'll have a full report on the day's activities in a future posting.
The Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award is a program of the IMCPL Foundation and is made possible by The Glick Fund, a fund of the Central Indiana Community Foundation.
