Whether it's the beauty, the purity, or the privacy, almost everyone who visits our Valley wants to live here. Is it any wonder then that we seem to have more than the usual share of talent? Musicians are heard at local watering holes and restaurants. Visual artists exhibit at a variety of local venues. But where are the Authors? At the Conway Public Library. The local author book fair is on Saturday, Dec. 14, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. More than 20 published authors will set up all over the building to sign and sell their original work(s). What more meaningful gift for that special someone than a book signed by an author who's practically (or even actually) your neighbor? A variety of genres are represented such as mystery, memoir, historical fiction, fantasy, ebooks, nonfiction, and children's picture and chapter books. Coffee, teas, fruit and doughnuts from Leavitt's Bakery will make your spirits bright. Valley Vision will be on hand, interviewing authors and buyers alike. This Saturday your library transforms into a showcase and a marketplace. Support our local authors. Turn out and meet some of the impressive talent living right in your own back yard.
