A variety of workshops and panel discussions will be offered throughout the day. The event will close by opening its doors to the public for Books and Brews that evening. Books and Brews is a free, family-friendly event where participating authors will be on hand to meet with the public and autograph their books in a festive book fair atmosphere.
