Local Author Fair

Local Author Fair - 2023

Saturday, March 11th from 1 - 3 p.m

Calling all area local writers!  Join us to connect with readers and fellow writers in our area.  All local authors are welcome to apply. If you live in the greater Chicago area and have published fiction or non-fiction for children, teens, or adults, we want to hear from you. Self-published writers are also encouraged to apply.  Space is limited.

How do I apply?

Please complete the application form and send us a copy of your book. The book that you submit will then belong to Wauconda Area Library. It may or may not be added to the library’s collection, but it will not be returned to you.   You may or may not be invited to participate in the fair, as space is limited.

Can I sell my books at the event?

You can sell your books at this event. Library staff will not be available to help with sales.  The books you sell must be offered at or below retail price, and not any higher.
