Just wanted to put out a great big huge THANK YOU to everyone who came out last Saturday for Writers’ Weekend 2013.
We truly hope you enjoyed the marathon presentation ride as much as we did, had a chance to solve any mysteries cropping up in your writing life, and met some new friends.
We are already hard at work crafting a fresh, exciting lineup for 2014 and would love to hear if there’s anything you’d like to see more, or less of. Leave a comment below or go to our fancy electronic suggestion box. And remember there’s a lot more to the library’s writerly support than just one day out of one weekend. Whether it's in-depth research, formatting specifics, where to submit, block break-throughs, or inspiration from the masters, we've got all the resources you need, year round, seven days a week. And don't miss any of these upcoming visits from local authors:
