Call for Submissions Answered by Hundreds, Exhibit Brings Exposure to Local Talent
October 8, 2012 (San Diego)--The San Diego Public Library is calling on San Diego county authors who have published books in 2012 to submit them to the 47th Annual Local Authors Exhibit. The aim of the Exhibit is to nurture writers, foster the pursuit of the writing arts and to create a great opportunity for the recognition of San Diego literary talents. The deadline for registering and submitting books is Monday, December 10, 2012. Authors may register online at www.sandiegolibrary.org.
The 47th Annual Local Author Exhibit will run the entire month of February 2013 in the lobby of the Central Library, located downtown at 820 E Street, San Diego, CA 92101. Participants will be invited to attend a special exhibition preview and author’s reception prior to the public unveiling. An Online Gallery, which lasts the whole year, accompanies the Exhibit and includes book information, cover images, author photos, and publishing and contact information.
The San Diego Public Library has long hosted special events for authors including book discussions, writing workshops and author talks, where writers are able to interact directly with their readers as they share, sell and sign their books. "We present this event for reading interest as well as the opportunity to highlight the diverse and abundant talent we have locally," said San Diego Public Library director Deborah Barrow.
