Dozens of award-winning Indiana authors and presenters to be featured at free, public event on Oct. 9 at Central Library
INDIANAPOLIS — How does one become an author? How does one get published? What’s it like to write a book? These questions and others can be answered at the Indy Author Fair, a full day of free, public activities including the opportunity to meet and greet dozens of Indiana authors on Oct. 9, 2010 at Indianapolis’ Central Library. The day will include programs, one-on-one conversations, and book sales and signings with local, regional and national authors, all with Indiana ties.
Scott Russell Sanders, recipient of the 2010 Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award in the National Author category, will be featured in a “Meet the Authors” panel discussion at 11 a.m. He will be joined by finalists in the Regional and Emerging Author categories for the panel discussion.
The Indy Author Fair is one event of the Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award program, which seeks to recognize the contributions of Indiana authors to the literary landscape in Indiana and across the nation. The Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award is a program of the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library Foundation and is funded through the generosity of The Glick Fund, a fund of Central Indiana Community Foundation.
Indiana Authors Award recipients and finalists will be honored Saturday evening, Oct. 9, at an award dinner/fundraiser at the Central Library benefiting the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library Foundation.
