Plus, we've got an awesome lineup of bestselling and local authors on Saturday for the MAIN EVENT! 

Resources for Writers

National Novel Writing Month

If you’re a writer, you know that November is National Novel Writing Month. Though, you might call it “NaNoWriMo” – either affectionately or, let’s face it, out of sheer necessity. Because really, if you’ve committed to writing 50,000 words in 30 days, who’s got the time?! But if you need some motivation, inspiration, writing resources, or just some quick tips to get you started, the Library has you covered.
