Author Fest

Calling all authors and would-be authors!

Derry Public Library will hold its fifth annual Author Festival on April 6th from 10-4pm. Derry Author Fest is a free conference for aspiring writers and is comprised of talks from authors and industry professionals. This year’s theme is “A Touch of Technique” and will cover a lot of ground particularly focusing on writing process, querying, narrative and publishing. It will feature such inspiring speakers as NYT best selling author Anita Diamant (The Red Tent and The Boston Girl), Lorin Rees of the Rees Literary Agency, Jenna Russell of the Boston Globe and more.

This is the perfect event for those who have a manuscript tucked away, for those who have been toying with that picture book idea, and for those who are ready to start submitting their work. Books will be on sale throughout the day thanks to Gibson’s book store of Concord. Find out more information and register at https://www.derryauthorfest.wordpress.com
