Literary fiction, speculative fiction, and selected nonfiction

Bela and Stephen participate in Author Fair

“Congratulations! We are pleased to inform you that you have been selected to participate in the Springfield City Library Author Fair at Central Library on Saturday, April 27, 2024.”

We brought our posters and signs, we brought our books, we took our place in the rotunda, “the library’s grand center court.” We met other local authors and sold enough books to take ourselves out to dinner. It was a wonderful day.

Josh DeForge of Running Scared Motion Pictures came to the Authors Fair. If you’d like to experience more of what the day was about, check out his short video of Stephen at the event.

Our local library is a lifeline for us. Through the larger network our little library is part of, we can explore and experience books and authors far and wide.

“The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.”
Albert Einstein

“The classroom was a jail of other people’s interests. The library was open, unending, free.”
Ta-Nehisi Coates

“Without libraries what have we? We have no past and no future.”
Ray Bradbury

We hope you have a local library that supports your reading life and your community. Bela read recently that “Libraries are good for the mind and the soul.”
