Readers and writers love to meet authors, and Longmontians are no exception to that rule. So, for the seventh year, the library is offering local fans an opportunity to meet dozens of local and Colorado authors at the “Authors We Love Open House” on Saturday, February 9, from 1 to 3:30 pm. Readers can browse from table to table, meeting authors, asking questions, and even buying books. There will be published authors of fiction, nonfiction, adult, children’s, and young adult books, plus genres and subjects galore. For young readers, our Children’s Section librarians will be hosting a special “Storytime for Word Lovers” program from 1:30 to 2:30 pm. Young wordsmiths can create their own works of poetry using large magnetic letters and enjoy fun stories. No registration is necessary for this special storytime, so drop in!
The “Authors We Love Open House” is a relaxed and fun atmosphere to get to know lots of creative Coloradans and maybe even get some inspiration for your own writing. No registration is required for the general open house and all ages are welcome. A complete list of attending authors is available at http://bit.ly/AuthorsWeLove.
