Willard Library in Evansville to Present Local Authors Series
Willard Library is partnering with Evansville Local Authors to present the "Evansville Local Authors Series," which features talented area authors. Greg Hager, Director of Willard Library stated, "Willard Library is incredibly excited to co-sponsor with the Evansville Local Authors group this series of monthly public programs. This is a great way for local authors to share their gifts and skills while at the same time enabling library patrons to connect with entertaining, fascinating books created right here in the Tri-State area. There are so many talented local authors and we're looking forward to being the venue to showcase as many of those authors as possible-- it's exactly what a public library like Willard should be doing."
Evansville author, Carolyn Ann Howard, had a vision for creating a covey of local talents who have published books or were in the process of doing so. The result is a collection of 40+ writers who regularly perform public forums designed to promote and educate the public about the world of writing and publishing. Howard adds, "Evansville Local Authors has bonded together quickly into a vibrant organization of local authors who support each other. We welcome those who are interested in the process and in supporting our group."
Howard will kick off the Willard series with her presentation on her latest novel, The Cliffords & Mr. Orr. Howard's extensive research of Evansville from 1915 to 1920, is portrayed in the historical fiction novel.
Patrons are encouraged to purchase author books prior to the events. They can be found on Amazon or at River City Mercantile, downtown Main Street, Evansville. The presentations will be held in the Browning Gallery on the fourth Monday of each month (except December), from 6 - 8 p.m. local time.
