The upcoming White Oak Author Fest is designed to showcase local authors while providing new opportunities for residents to interact with each other and the library.

Best-selling author Denise Swanson will talk about her “labor of love”—writing—on Sept. 29.

Swanson’s talk, “The Rocky Road to Publication”, will start at 5:30 p.m. at the district’s Crest Hill branch, 20670 Kubinski Drive.

Inspired by personal accounts, Swanson is the New York Times bestselling author of the Scumble River and Devereaux's Dime Store mystery series.

She writes from her personal experiences as a school psychologist and small town resident.

Light refreshments and wine will be served before the presentation.

White Oak Author Fest, Sept. 30

The White Oak Library District will also be celebrating nearly 30 local authors from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 30 at its inaugural White Oak Author Fest.

A panel discussion in the morning will give the audience insight into what it takes to be a self-published and traditionally published author in the changing media landscape.

Patrons will then be able to meet the authors who bring characters to life on the page at tables set up throughout the library. Authors who write for a variety of age groups and genres will be available to interact with readers. Books will be available for purchase.
