Local Author Book Fair

It’s nearing the end of October. After Halloween, you know what’s coming up next in every retail store and every radio station…the holidays are coming. One of the biggest challenges for many people is the gift situation. We live in a world where we can get basically anything we want whenever we want it. What do you get the person that has everything? How about a book written by a local author? Boone County Public Library, 1786 Burlington Pike in Burlington, will hold a Local Author Book Fair on Saturday, November 9 from 1:30-3 p.m. featuring over 40 different local authors! Genres include mystery, history, children’s literature, thrillers, romance, and more! This unique treat for yourself or a loved one is a perfect way to take a little stress out of the holiday season, meet, and support local writers in the process!
