To help publicize the event, authors should send a photo, a brief bio, author website and social media contact, titles and formats of your books, and links to book trailers on Youtube.

Authors should let us know how you prefer to be listed (real name, nickname, and/or pen names). For more information or to sign up, contact Peggy at (979) 209-5622 or The earlier you send your information, the more likely we will be able to include it on the library’s website (first deadline for sending book trailer links has passed).
