Local Author Fair

On Sunday, November 5, from 2 to 3:30pm, the public is invited to drop by the Bloomington Public Library’s Community Room to meet and speak with a variety of area authors. Although November is known as National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo — pronounced nano-wry-mow), this fair will feature authors who’ve penned works covering a variety of genres. Attendees will meet authors of romance, suspense, horror, paranormal, fantasy, young adult (teen), mystery, mental health, humor, poetry, and children books.

    This free event serves to provide a platform for local writers to showcase their work, connect with readers, provide advice to budding authors, and network with others who share their interest in books. The fair will feature mostly Mclean County authors, with a few from elsewhere in Illinois also in attendance.

This fair is for you if you are…
• Interested in finding inspiration to help you finally write the book that’s been buzzing around in your head
• In search of tips to help you get past a roadblock in your writing project or to make a character or situation more plausible
• Are an author who is looking for ways to interact with other authors
• Looking for your next great read
    Whether you’re an avid reader or an aspiring writer, Bloomington Library’s first Local Authors Fair will give you a chance to fulfill these objectives as you meet and chat with local authors. In addition to talking with fairgoers about their books, these authors will be able to answer questions about their writing processes and techniques and their experiences with publishing. Each will also sign and sell their works (This program is free of charge, and no purchase is necessary).
    This is a drop-in fair; attendees are welcome to come in any time during the afternoon event. Each author will be available throughout the fair to speak with attendees either one-on-one or in a small group. Simply approach any of the authors to ask a question or to listen in as they speak with others.
    The lineup of authors for this fair is still being solidified. In October, check the library’s website — BloomingtonLibrary.org — or the library’s Facebook page for a complete list of participating authors and the titles of their books. Library staff anticipate that approximately 20 authors will take part in this inaugural event.

    Questions about the author fair can be asked by calling the Adult Services Desk at 309-828-6093 or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
