Continuing a tradition of presenting the latest, cutting edge novels to our community, the Leesburg Library staff will open the Community Room for a special BookFest Event on Friday, March 15. If you’re a mystery fan or author in the mystery or crime genre, you’ll enjoy meeting the top writers in the field and learning more about the genre. To this end, we are honored to be included in two national book tours with HarperCollins international best-seller Wendy Corsi Staub and award-winner Alison Gaylin. The event will also feature Mary Anna Evans, author of the award-winning Faye Longchamp archaeological mysteries with her latest novel.
Please join us for one or all of these remarkable presentations.
