Ladner United Church is opening its doors to local authors and readers this summer for Authors in the Village.
The event is scheduled to coincide with Ladner Village Market on Sunday, Aug. 23, from noon until 4 p.m. The event will be free for the public and for the participating authors.
Authors will be given a display table in the newly renovated entrance hall of the church where they can sell their books directly to the public.
For authors wanting more, reading slots will be scheduled throughout the afternoon in one of the smaller conference rooms. There is no charge for a table or reading slot, and authors will keep all proceeds from the sale of their books.
The deadline for authors to sign up is Aug. 1. Authors will be accepted for tables and readings on a first-come-first-served basis and the organizers will try to accommodate as many authors as possible. Preference will be given to authors who reside in Delta.
Independently published books are welcome.
Interested authors should send an email as soon as possible to co-organizer Laura Thomas at laura@laurathomascommunications. com with their book titles and the title of the book they wish to read from, if a reading is desired.
For more information, authors can contact Thomas by email or by phone at 604-307-4971. All other queries can be directed to Jim Short at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-946-6254.
