Local Authors, Illustrators at Library Saturday

This Saturday, Nov. 21 is "Local Authors and Illustrators Day" at the Hocutt-Ellington Memorial Library featuring five authors and two illustrators who will be signing books and meeting the public.

All seven--who between them have an impressive collection of children's books, novels and non-fiction--are from Clayton or surrounding communities.

"I really didn't realize how many authors and illustrators we have in the area," said Historian Pam Baumgartner. "We expect that each one of them will bring in different people, so we hope to have a crowd."

The authors are: Lisa Pelton, Jodi Grubbs, Judith Hoffman and Evelyn Lemar. The illustrators are: Dale Hardin and Rebecca Anne Honeycutt

The event is scheduled for 10 am to 2 pm.

The Library usually has events of this type in conjunction with their semi-annual book sale but decided earlier this year to split them into two events.

For more information, please give the Library a call at 919-553-5542.
