Connect with Local Authors and Their Books at the Library!

Meet local authors at the 3rd annual King Library Author Fair. Join us for an exciting day filled with writers discussing their latest books, writing styles, and processes.

Participate in panel discussions, speak with the authors about their craft, and stock up on your holiday purchases by buying from a local author.

You can't buy happiness, but you can buy a book, which is almost the same thing!
