Library Hosts Showcase for Local Authors

06/01/2012 05:32PM ● Published by Anonymous

The Cumberland County Public Library & Information Center hosts its annual Local Authors Showcase during 4th Friday, June 22. The public is invited to meet and learn more about some of our area's homegrown authors from 7 - 8:45 p.m. in the Pate Room of Headquarters Library, 300 Maiden Lane.

If you are interested in writing and would like to hear first-hand from those who have published books, this is a great opportunity to not only browse some locally-written titles, but also learn the ins and outs of self-publishing. Books will be on sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Friends of the Library.

Participating authors and their books:

  • Michael Potts, End of Summer
  • Sharon Murphy Yates, The Busy Mom
  • Michael Colonnese, Sex and Death, I Suppose
