Registration has begun for the 2013 Local Authors Expo, presented by the Friends of the Birmingham Public Library. To be held on February 2, the annual Expo provides an opportunity for authors from the Birmingham area and elsewhere in Alabama to meet their reading public, autograph copies of their books, and network with others in the writing community.
Every year the library hosts up to 100 authors. Those already scheduled to attend the 2013 event include Jessie Crawford Jr. (the Leroy children’s series), J. D. Weeks (Birmingham: A Postcard Tour), Suzanne Johnson (Royal Street), Carolyn McKinstry (While the World Watched), and many more.
Any authors who wish to sign up for a booth at the event may do so online at the EventBrite registration page. There is a $5 booth fee for participants, but attending the Expo will be free for the general public, no registration required.
For more information, contact Jared Millet at (205) 226-3727.
