Read Locally: A Local Author Festival

Saturday, May 13, 2017 at 1:00 p.m.

The Yorba Linda Public Library is celebrating local writing talent with a local author festival.  Read Locally is an opportunity for Yorba Linda authors to gain exposure, network with other authors, and engage a new readership.  As a part of the event, community members will have the opportunity to interact with authors and purchase their works.
