Book fans and aspiring authors alike are invited to the Local Author Fair at Galaxie Library on Saturday, Nov. 2 from 10:30 a.m.–3 p.m. The library is at 14955 Galaxie Ave., Apple Valley.
The event will begin with a free Loft Literary Center workshop called How to Find Readers. Participants will learn how to build an audience and engage with readers. Register for this workshop at www.dakotacountylibrary.libcal.com.
Starting at noon, 30 authors from around Minnesota will discuss, sign and sell their books. There will be opportunities for authors to network with each other and learn more about the business of writing and publishing.
Keynote speaker Dr. Antonia Felix, a New York Times best-selling author of 21 books, will describe her writing career and how writing expanded her interest in women's rights and leadership.
Winners of Dakota County Library's Poetry Contest and Teen Fan Fiction Contest will provide live readings of their work.
