Celebrate Indie Author Day with the Corona Public Library!
For Immediate Release
September 29, 2017
CORONA, CA–The Corona Public Library, in partnership with the Inlandia Institute, will participate in the annual Indie Author Day celebration by hosting an event on Oct. 14, 2017. This event will offer the opportunity for independent authors of the Inland Empire to host a vendor table, share their work with others, and attend panels and workshops throughout the day.
This event will be part of the second annual Indie Author Day event, and the 4th annual Indie Author Fair hosted by the Inlandia Institute. Last year, nearly 300 libraries hosted thousands of authors across the United States and Canada. This year, high participation is expected again. This is an opportunity for the indie community to come together in the library to help local self-published and independent authors get discovered and for readers to find new books written by fellow community members. In addition to the activities that will be happening locally, the Corona Public library will enrich their programming with selected workshop videos produced by Indie Author Day sponsors from around the world.
