The Monroe County Library System calls for Authors and Illustrators for the 16th Annual Writers on the River Event!

Authors and illustrators of all genres are invited to declare interest in participating in the Monroe County Library System’s 16th Annual Writers on the River book and author fair.  The free event, which will take place on Sunday, November 9, 2014, at the Ellis Library & Reference Center in Monroe, provides readers with a golden opportunity to meet approximately fifty local and regional authors, discuss books, and purchase signed, personalized copies directly from the creators. 

Interested authors should e-mail a brief biography and description of their work, along with contact information, to Bill Reiser, Ellis Library Manager, at by September 15, 2014.  No phone calls, please. 

Unfortunately, due to space limitations, an e-mail does not guarantee inclusion in the event, but every effort will be made to include as many authors as possible while offering as diverse an array of genres as possible. 

More details on Writers on the River 2014 will be released soon.
