Share and Promote Your Writing at Local Authors' Fair

BEAVERTON, Ore. – Calling all authors! Join Beaverton City Library on Saturday, May 16 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the main library location (Meeting Rooms A & B and the Cathy Stanton Conference Room) for Northwest Local, a free book fair highlighting the work of talented authors in the tri-county area.

To make this event a success, the library is asking writers from Washington, Multnomah and Clackamas counties to apply for a space to share and promote their latest work, inviting enthusiasts of all genres to participate, including adult, young adult and children’s literature. Participating authors will receive their own table where they are welcome to discuss and sell their books, keeping all proceeds for themselves.

In return for their involvement in the fair, the library kindly requests that each author donate two of their books. One book will be raffled off to attendees of the event and one book may be added to the library’s collection. Donated books not added to the collection will be sold by the Friends of the Library to support library programs and services. Although donations are not guaranteed placement into the library’s collection, they are sincerely appreciated and will otherwise be put to good use.

Don’t miss out on this exciting chance to share your creativity and accomplishments with those around you! Applications will be accepted until March 15 and can be found online at For more information, contact
