The Public Library of Enid and Garfield County is having the Enid Author Fest Saturday, April 23, 2022, from 1-5 pm. Like a lot of things, it’s been two years since the last one and I’m looking forward to connecting with my fellow authors once again.
According to Margo Holmes, Adult Programs and Development Coordinator:
Local author festivals provide an opportunity for authors to showcase their work while developing connections in the area, and the public learns about authors publishing right here in their neighborhood. Attendees can meet some of the top writing talents in the region, sample their work, and even take home an autographed book.
Since our festival takes place in April this year and April is National Poetry Month we would like to incorporate a poetry contest that will take place all month, with winners announced at the festival. The submitted poetry will be published in a bound book and everyone who submits a poem will receive a free copy of the book. We will offer poetry on the spot, where poets with manual typewriters will create a custom poem for festivalgoers.
Come to the festival and check out the authors, get some personal poetry made just for you, and make connections with Oklahoma authors. Come by my table and say “hi.” We’d love to see you.
What are you reading this week? Come pick up a new book at the Enid Author Fest in downtown Enid April 23, 2022, from 1-5.
