Come and meet some of our city’s most creative minds. Over one hundred authors from the Birmingham area will sell and autograph copies of their books on the Birmingham Public Library on Saturday, December 4. The city of Birmingham has a rich writing community, with authors delving into personal memoirs, tales of childhood struggles, uplifting poetry, books for children, stories of romance and mystery, and more. Set to coincide with a special visit from Santa Claus, the Local Author Expo is a once-a-year opportunity to meet the rich tapestry of authors from our very own neighborhoods.

Central Library, East Building
December 4, 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The BPL Local Author Expo is sponsored by the Friends of the Birmingham Public Library. Its goal is to encourage literary involvement in the community by providing a forum for local writers to connect and build an audience with the Birmingham reading public.
