Indie Author Day 2017 at Aiken County Public Library


Saturday, October 14, 2017 - 10:00 am

Venue or organization: 

Aiken County Public Library is proud to announce that it will be participating in the annual Indie Author Day celebration by hosting an event on October 14, 2017 that is free and open to the public. This event will feature speakers on topics related to independent publishing, with a break for lunch from noon to 1:00 p.m. From 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., there will be signings by local authors.

This event will be part of the second annual Indie Author Day event. Last year, nearly 300 libraries hosted thousands of authors across the United States and Canada. This year, high participation is expected again. This is an opportunity for the indie community to come together in the library to help local self-published and independent authors get discovered and for readers to find new books written by fellow community members. Beyond this annual event, the Indie Author Day community offers programming on the website to help libraries and authors stay connected throughout the year.
