The San Diego Public Library’s 51st Annual Local Author Exhibit is nearing and the Library is calling resident authors (zip codes 91901-92199) for submissions. If your book or eBook was originally published in 2016, we would like to display it in the exhibit, which will run the entire month of February 2017 in the beautiful San Diego Central Library @ Joan Λ Irwin Jacobs Common. Once again, there will be a separate exhibit and kick off event for our Little Local Authors, ages 11 and under, taking place in March 2017. New this year, Teen Local Authors (ages 12-18) will be highlighted separately with their own kick off event as well.
ONLY ONE TITLE MAY BE REGISTERED PER AUTHOR
