Discover local authors at the Omaha Public Library Author Fair

While writers can follow many different paths to get their works published, the bigger challenge can be getting those works to stand out among the competition.

Dale Clark Main Library, 215 S. 15th St., 1st and 4th floors. The event is free and open to the public.

Throughout the event, participants will have access to a number of resources for writers, including opportunities to speak with representatives from the 1877 Society, Barnes & Noble, Concierge Marketing, Friends of Omaha Public Library, Humanities Nebraska, Nebraska Center for the Book, Nebraska Writers Collective, Omaha Public Library, Redbrush Publishing, The Bookworm, and the University of Nebraska Press.
