Chattanooga Public Library hosts first ever “Local Authors Fair”

80 local authors highlight their work

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF)- The Chattanooga Public Library hosted their first ever annual Local Authors Fair Saturday.

The Downtown Library hosted over 80 authors who brought their books, gave readings, and lectures on multiple floors of the library.

Executive Director, Jason Sullivan said, “This is a great opportunity for us to showcase the talented writers here in our area.”

One local author mentioned how grateful he was for the Chattanooga Library to host the event and how art is always better in community.

“Art is all about community, and the fact that our local library is willing to open up their doors and open up their space and promote for the local art community means everything to me as an author, and to us as a publishing company, because art is always better and community. Especially since the process can be such a solitary one,” said Aaron Quinn, local author with Walnut Street Publishing.
