The Leesburg Public Library has issued a call for entries to the third annual program celebrating local authors and their books. The Local Authors’ Showcase will be held in the Leesburg Public Library on Saturday, October 12th from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. The 2013 event will feature authors of children's literature. Our goal remains, to bring exposure to local talent and nurture the pursuit of the writing arts in Central Florida. We encourage participating authors to share ideas and insight on writing and publishing with the community.
The exhibit is open to any children's author, published or self-published. Children explore books as a means of understanding the world, experiencing other realities and sparking imagination. Featured books may include stories, books, and poems that are appropriate for children.
Authors are required to have books available for purchase and signing. The library will be offering incentives for anyone attending the program and visiting the author’s tables. The Showcase is limited to 25 authors and the deadline for entry is July 26, 2013 or until the roster is filled. To enter, email Carol.Anderson@leesburgflorida.gov or call 352-728-9790.
