The LocalLit event for 2017 was wonderful and included something fascinating for everyone! With 25 authors who spoke about their books and their writing experiences, so many genres were showcased and explored! I came home with biographies, memoirs, a book on relationship building, a book on raising gorgeous roses, and all of the books I couldn't buy are available at San Jose Public Library. There were enriching panel discussions and enlightening background discussions about the authors, books and even writing process. I learned that there are resources that SJPL offers for writing development and self-publishing, such as Self-e and others the website. To the SJPL Librarians, Deborah Estreicher and Stacy Tomashevski, and SJSU Librarians, Peggy Cabrera and Toby Matoush, THANK YOU for bringing us an excellent author event and an afternoon, delightfully spent! I can't wait till next year!
