Fall Author Festival

Stevens Point Branch, Pinery Room

Celebrate Local Talent!

Wisconsin novelists, including several from Portage County, will be here to share their work. Come to discover your next favorite author--who might live just down the street!

Starting at 9:30, each author will have half an hour to present their novel(s) and sign books--most will also have books available for sale! The morning will feature authors who write historical fiction, and the afternoon will feature mystery, romance, thriller, and true-to-life novels. Stay all day, for a couple hours, or--if you must--just for one. We'll have snacks available throughout the day, and the event is FREE to attend.*
