Waynesboro Public Library to host local authors

waynesboro libraryThe Waynesboro Public Library will host more than thirty authors during Author Fest on Saturday, March 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This is the fourth year of the free annual event that showcases local authors who will be meeting the public and selling and signing books.

The participating authors write in a wide range of genres, including romance, mystery, thriller, horror, nonfiction, Christian fiction, fantasy, poetry, science fiction, historical fiction, young adult and children’s.

Adult services librarian Rebecca Lamb says, “Author Fest is the library’s way of supporting local writers, from those who are already successful to those who have just published their first book. This is also a great opportunity for the public to meet authors and learn about writing and publishing a book.”

The Waynesboro Public Library is located at 600 S. Wayne Ave. in Waynesboro, VA. For additional information, call 540-942-6746 or go to www.WaynesboroPublicLibrary.org.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009.

(We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!)

That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year.

(Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.)

AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue?

From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading.

Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
