Fourth annual Rochester Author Fair on Small Business hosted November 26

Booklovers from across metro Detroit can delight in finding new authors, meeting with favorite writers, and perhaps catching some writing inspiration of their own at the third annual Author Fair hosted by Rochester Writers and Rochester Hills Public Library. This local literary event takes place in the library’s Multipurpose Room from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Small Business Saturday, November 26.

Up to twenty authors will be on hand to discuss their books and love of writing. The event features a mix of traditionally published and self-published authors.  

“Each year gets better and better,” said Michael Dwyer of Rochester Writers. “We’re delighted to once again collaborate with Rochester Hills Public Library to bring authors and readers together. The Rochester Author Fair puts local authors in front of area residents to meet in person, talk about the stories in their books, and to autograph their books – a signed book makes a wonderful holiday gift.”

At Rochester Hills Public Library, local writers can choose from a variety of programs to help hone their craft.

“Public libraries not only encourage reading, but also experience-based learning opportunities to foster productivity and creativity,” said Morian. “RHPL has a number of writer programs such as Scribes and RHPL’s Writers Group to encourage local authors to meet and receive feedback. The Rochester Author Fair is one way RHPL inspires reading and lifelong learning by connecting writers and readers within the community.”
