Each year since 2003 Pike County Public Library District has showcased the regions authors and artists during their Fall Festival of Authors at the Pikeville Public Library. The one festival has outgrown the space at the library.

With so many talented authors within the region, one day a year is simply not enough to present the talented authors and artists that our area has to offer. In order to provide more opportunities for library patrons to enjoy the creator's works we will expand the author presentation to include multiple days through the year.

Beginning in August, Pikeville Public Library will be inviting authors to come in one Monday afternoon in each month from 2:00-5:00 P.M. to promote, sell and sign books for patrons and visitors. The authors then will have the opportunity to attend Book Talks, a book discussion group that the library offers on alternating Mondays from 5:00-6:00 P.M.

Several authors are already making plans for the upcoming book signings. A scheduled list of authors will soon be released.

Authors who wish to participate should contact Charlene Hopkins by calling the library at 606-432-1285 or send an email to charlene@pikelibrary.org
