Birmingham Public Library Will Not Host Local Authors Expo in 2017
The Birmingham Public Library (BPL) will not be holding its annual Local Authors Expo and Book Fair in 2017, BPL Interim Director Sandi Lee announced today.
The popular event, which features 100 authors from across metro Birmingham as well as writing workshops, has been hosted by the Friends of the Birmingham Public Library each February in the Central Library for a decade. Lee said BPL is tabling the Local Authors Expo this year, and is planning to retool the event in the future.
"We are exploring other avenues to highlight our local authors in bigger and better ways," Lee said. "We are looking forward to working with the authors and our communities to showcase the writing talent in the Birmingham area."
