In an effort to promote the many local authors in the area, the Milford Public Library will hold a Local Author Book Event on Thursday, June 15 from 5 to 7 PM. The event will be held during Third Thursday.

“This is a way to showcase the amazing local talent we have,” Carolyn Tabor, Program Director, said. “We are asking for any authors who are interested in promoting their works to sign up for this, whether it is books of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, children’s books, any type of written work.”

In order to register for the event, authors are asked to send a photo of themselves with some information. They will need to provide the town where they live or are from, and a list of books they have written. Tables will be provided to each author, and they are permitted to sell books.

“Set up for the event begins at 4:30 PM in the Smith Room at the library,” Tabor said. “All participants are responsible for setting up and taking down their display. There is no charge to participate, but we are requesting a one book donation from each author. There will not be a formal presentation, this is a walk-through and mingle event.”

The event is also free to the public.

Authors who wish to participate in the event need to contact the library as soon as possible. Send an email with the requested information to Tabor at [email protected]. The information can also be sent to Neda Zimmerman, Teen Programmer, at [email protected] or to Kim O’Hea, Children Programmer, at [email protected]. For more information, contact the library at (302) 422-8996.
