While writers can follow many different paths to get their work published, the bigger challenge can be getting those works to stand out among the competition. Omaha Public Library will offer an opportunity for local authors and publishers to tout their accomplishments at its Author Fair on Saturday, Feb. 16, 1-4 p.m. at W. Dale Clark Main Library, 215 S. 15th St., 4th floor. The event is free and open to the public.
Participants will hear from a panel of publishers and literary experts at 2 p.m.: Sally Deskins, Les Femmes Folles; Cindy Grady, WriteLife; Lisa Pelto, Concierge Marketing; Erin Reel, Publishing Services; and Ellen Wheeler Scott, The Bookworm. The discussion will include advice for writers who want to be discovered.
Throughout the day, participants will have the opportunity to meet authors, buy books and have them signed. Authors participating in this event include Victoria Alexander, Jeff Beals, Leo Adam Biga, Brian Bogdanoff, Jennifer Castello, David Catalan, Marilyn Coffey, Charles Collins, Sally Deskins, Robin Donovan, Laura Felleman, Marcia Calhoun Forecki, Savannah French, Anne Fuller, Ean Garrett, J.P.
