Indie Author Day Saturday at Lovegrove Galleries
Lovegrove Gallery and Gardens will host, for the second year, Indie Author Day 2017. The national event will take place on this Saturday, Oct. 14, from 1- 4 p.m., at Lovegrove Gallery and Gardens, 4637 Island Road, N.W., Matlacha.
The meet-and-greet will showcase authors who have self-published, or Indie-published, their books.
Similar gatherings will be held throughout North America. Partners include industry publications, library organizations, technical partners and groups from all across the publishing industry.
This year authors include Karen T. Bartlett, Carol Ervin, Betty Freberg, Tom Hall, Michael J. Silberg, Scott P. Smith, Fran Thomas, Robin Tuthill and Jim Usavage.
Book illustrators Leoma Lovegrove and Jennifer Smith will also attend the event.
Indie Author Day is a one-day, all-out occasion for local authors, libraries and publishing industry experts to celebrate, educate and collaborate. Most of the other hosts are libraries, but why shouldn’t an art gallery sponsor an event that showcases the incredible talent that we have right here in Southwest Florida.
It will provide the opportunity for residents and visitors to meet local writers, hear about their inspirations and get a glimpse into the indie publishing business, from pitch to publication.
Brainy food and beverages will be served.
