Whether you are an aspiring author or a seasoned published writer, join us for The Santa Barbara Public Library’s Local Author Day. We will hear from local authors on the craft of writing and have a panel discussion on getting your books into the hands of readers with opportunities to ask questions about marketing, finding an agent, and working with an editor. There will be time for networking and a local author book sale.
The registration to be a seller at the Author Book Sale is now closed as all the spaces have been taken. If you have signed up already you will receive an email from us on Monday. Please sign up to attend the event.
