Adventure, Mystery, Romance, Fantasy, and more Featured at Author Fair

Rochester Hills Public Library & Rochester Writers host the fourth annual Rochester Author Fair on Small Business Saturday, November 26, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Booklovers from across metro Detroit can delight in finding new authors, meeting with favorite writers, and perhaps catching some writing inspiration of their own at the fourth annual Author Fair hosted by Rochester Writers and Rochester Hills Public Library (RHPL). This popular local literary event takes place in the library’s Multipurpose Room from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Small Business Saturday, November 26, as part of Downtown Rochester celebrating local small businesses.

Twenty Michigan authors will be on hand to discuss their books and love of writing. The event features a mix of traditionally published and indie published authors, with a variety of genres including Adventure, Mystery, Romance, Fantasy, Historical, Memoir, and more for readers of all ages. This event is free and open to the public.

“Each year gets better and better,” said Michael Dwyer of Rochester Writers. “We’re delighted to once again collaborate with the Rochester Hills Public Library to bring authors and readers together. The Rochester Author Fair puts local authors in front of area residents to meet in person, talk about the stories in their books, and to autograph their books – a signed book makes a wonderful holiday gift.”

“Public libraries not only encourage reading but also provide experience-based learning opportunities to foster productivity and creativity,” said Juliane Morian, library director. “RHPL has a number of writer programs … the Rochester Author Fair is one way RHPL inspires reading and lifelong learning by connecting writers and readers within the community.”
