Guest speaker: Susan Hans O’Connor
Independent Bookstores are a vital piece of the book publishing puzzle. Partnering with local stores can be one of the most effective tools authors can use to promote their books. Susan will share her insights from the perspective of both a current bookstore owner as well as a former book editor. This program is being offered to all authors attending the library’s Read Local/Eat Local event as well as the general public.
Susan Hans O’Connor has been the owner of the Penguin Bookshop since 2014. She began her publishing career at Viking Penguin where she worked as an editor for over a decade. Learn more about Penguin Bookshop Author Events at https://www.penguinbookshop.com/authors-0.

Between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., twenty-one local authors will be available for book signings and selected readings. Three food trucks will be on site to purchase refreshments.
