Visiting Author
Racine Public Library welcomes authors who would like to present or promote their books to the local community, particularly authors from Racine County and throughout Wisconsin. Please note that we base our selection of and acceptance of solicitations for author visits largely on reviews of the author’s work. Please also be aware that Racine Public Library does not allow the sale of a title that is not held in its collection. If an author wishes to have available copies of their books for sale at the time of their visit, we would request they donate one copy of each title for sale to be included in the library’s circulating collection.
