Troy Author Day 2013

troy author dayYesterday I finalized plans for TROY AUTHOR DAY.

Last spring I was part of an impromptu author discussion at a local bookstore. It was barely promoted but a decent crowd showed up, and I wondered what would happen if we rounded up lots of local talent and did spread the word. I talked to Market Block Books and The Troy Public Library, emailed a list of authors from around the Troy/Albany/Schenectady NY area, and got a great response.

So now we have twenty-three successful authors — all with local roots — gathering at the Troy, NY public library for a group signing and panel discussions. If you’re one of my local blog readers, I hope to see you there. Full details are below, as well as at TroyAuthorDay.com.

Market Block Books and The Troy Public Library present the first-ever TROY AUTHOR DAY.

One thought on “Troy Author Day 2013

  1. Hi Dennis, I’ll see you on Saturday. That was a terrific discussion at the Bethlehem Library yesterday afternoon. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did (and obviously your other enthusiastic fans). I heard comments that had me re-thinking characters in the book — and in my own work. Thanks again for taking the time and making the afternoon so engaging.
    Paul
