Huntley Library Gathers Local Authors for Fair
Weekend event to feature 15 area local authors.
Huntley librarian Susan Riddle-Mojica knew there were local authors around town.
“It’s a very good response, we have authors of children’s stories, illustrators, short stories, memoirs, nonfiction, romance, sci-fi, military and thrillers,” Riddle-Mojica said.
“I was thrilled with the range we got.”
Fifteen local authors will be featured during the fair, from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at the library, 11000 Ruth Road. Authors will be available to talk about writing and will have books available for sale.
Riddle-Mojica got the idea from other libraries and felt there would be a strong interested because Huntley has a strong local writer’s community, she said. She knows of several local writers clubs, including one in Sun City Huntley that is very active.
There are so many talented authors in the area that she thought it would be worth trying to bring them together, she said.
Visitors can have a chance to talk with authors, some who are self-published or have gone the traditional publishing route, get tips on writing and getting published.
“Given the range of (authors) coming and the range of topics covering different genres, there is something there for everyone. I hope everyone comes out to meet our local talent," Riddle-Mojica said.
