Join us for the Second Annual gathering of Sonoma County writers and readers. We will welcome a wide variety of authors who work in many genres, ranging from romance to investigative reporting, from poetry to fiction, from children's literature to local history.

Sonoma County has an impressive array of local authors, and here is your chance to get acquainted with them, if you are a reader, and to network, if you are a writer yourself.

The Sonoma County Library presents this event in partnership with Creative Sonoma, who will present a panel discussion on "The Business of Writing."
