Indie Author Day

October 8, 2016


During the Inaugural Indie Author Day on October 8, 2016, libraries from all across North America will host their own local author events with the support of the Indie Author Day team. In addition to these local programs, each library’s indie community will come together for an hour-long digital gathering at 2 pm Eastern featuring Q&A with writers, agents and other industry leaders. Don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity for libraries and authors to connect on both local and global levels!

Interested in finding out which libraries have already signed up to participate?

Of course, one of the greatest parts of Indie Author Day is the opportunity to meet and network with fellow members of the writing community. Meaningful friendships and business partnerships can be born at the library, so be sure to plan for some food, drink and fun as well.
