From the North Grenville Times, February 5, 2020:
The North Grenville Public Library (NGPL) will be holding a local author showcase at the end of February to celebrate the end of Freedom to Read week, which is celebrated from February 23-29, and is an annual event that encourages Canadians to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom, which is guaranteed under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. “What better way to celebrate our own freedom to read than by celebrating our local talent?” says NGPL Coordinator of Community Engagement, Liz Dwyer.
The showcase will be held at the NGPL on February 29, from 1-4 pm. There are 19 local authors with diverse backgrounds who have confirmed their attendance at the event. There will be representatives from almost every genre of writing, including mystery, poetry, blogging, historical fiction, fantasy, non-fiction, romance, sci fi, children’s books and horror.
The showcase will give the authors a chance to share their work, and many will have their books for sale. At 3:00 pm there will be an author panel, where select authors will take questions from the public. Throughout the event, people will be able to enter a draw to win books by the local authors and a grand prize of a $50 gift certificate to Chapters.
Liz says the NGPL believes that we are very fortunate to have such a talented group of people working and living in our community. “We want to give local residents a chance to meet, talk to, and get to know some of these fascinating people.”
