___

Author Marilyn Holt from Abilene launches her first fiction title “Confessions to Mr. Roosevelt.” Marilyn has authored several history titles including “The Orphan Trains: Placing out in America’” and is trying her hand at historical fiction. Though it’s not set to be released until after Book Fair, you can pre-order and be the first to hear excerpts from the book.


Andy Schafer will be bringing us up to date on the digital book offerings from the state library. We hope he will include the release of a software package that will bring the various e-book vendors under one system.

Rita King, from Baker & Taylor, will join us through Zoom to talk about children’s titles.

Bethany from Faith & Life bookstore will have the best of inspirational writing. 
  
Sandy will present ideas on programming for all ages.

Marcy will present her annual review of the best in adult books. 

Lunch will be served in the newly remodeled Seven Dolors Church across the street from the library.  Please bring $5.
