In recognition of Fauquier’s writers, the Fauquier Public Library is planning an event called “Great Writers, Right Here” on Oct. 2 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the John Barton Payne Building.
“Any author from Fauquier and the surrounding area can sign up,” said Lisa Pavlock, who is coordinating the event.
The event will allow published authors in the community, across a spectrum of genres and subjects, to share and discuss their work, and sign and sell books, Pavlock said.
“We’re doing this for two reasons,” Pavlock said. “One, we want to give area authors an opportunity to meet as a community: share their books, talk about their work. Second, we want to give the community an opportunity to meet a bunch of successful area writers all together under one roof. We expect a variety of genres, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, so there’ll be something of interest for everyone.” Pavlock said she is frequently approached by writers who hope to do a book signing event, so the library hatched the idea of a larger-scale event.
The sign up date for the Great Writers event is Aug. 1; the form will be posted on the first page of the library website at fauquierlibrary.org. Space is limited, so writers are cautioned to apply early.
