Local authors to read at Summerland Library

The Friends of the Summerland Library Society has organized In Our Own Write — A Celebration of Summerland Authors.

At the suggestion of our Community Librarian, Susan Kline, the Friends of the Summerland Library Society has organized In Our Own Write — A Celebration of Summerland Authors.

The event will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 23, from 3 to 7 p.m. in the library.

Ten writers who live in Summerland have agreed to read from published or current works, and answer questions about what they write and why. Some of the authors will also have their books available for purchase and signing.

Summerland has long been a magnet for artists in various disciplines and many writers have made it their home.

The library reaches out to readers of all ages, and the Friends help sponsor such popular perennials as Books for Babies and the Summer Reading Club.

Event organizers want to draw attention to the people who are responsible for some of the books on the library’s shelves.

The authors cover the range from children’s literature to local history and memoirs to social issues and the environment.

The following writers have agreed to participate:  Ruth Charles, Rick Cogbill, Jean Cox, Al Crossley, Danny Evanishen, Don Gayton, Rene Goldman, Richard Haverkamp, Glenn Leaver and Susan McIver.

A schedule of the order of readings for In Our Own Write will be posted in the library closer to the date.

For more information, contact: Peter Hay, Friends of the Summerland Library, at peterbooks@gmail.com.
