St. Mary's County Library Author Fair 2020
St. Mary's County Library invites local authors to participate in our Author Fair to be held Saturday, April 25, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Lexington Park Library. This event will provide authors with an opportunity to promote, sell, and sign copies of their work, whether it is fiction, non-fiction, adult, young adult, or children's. Self-published authors are welcome and encouraged.

The following rules apply:
-You must be a published author.
-Each author must bring their own displays and advertisements. Displays must be family friendly.
-Any display materials should fit within the confines of the provided table space. We cannot accommodate banners, posters, or other wall or ceiling hangings.
-The Library will attempt to provide one table and one chair for each author. However, due to space constraints there may be two authors per table.
-You can promote and sell your books, but you cannot use the author fair to promote or sell items from any of your other businesses.
-Authors must attend the event and are responsible for their own exhibits, including any money, cash boxes, products, signs, or other items they wish to use. The Library is not able to provide change or credit card readers. There is free WiFi.
-Authors must be prepared to speak about their work and/or author experience for 10 minutes.
-All authors that are selected to present will be asked to provide a photo for publicity.
