    Dear Librarians,

    Your effort in promoting literacy is
    quite appreciated.
    I suggest that this author event
    should be given more publicity.
    Had I known about this on time,
    I would have been a part of this
    wonderful book event.
    I have a question.
    Is this a yearly event?
    If yes, what time of the
    year do you start to send out
    notice of event?

    Thank you for this opportunity to express my

    Paul Emekwulu, Author of “Encountering Jesus: Touched by the Holy Spirit”

    • The Author’s Festival is not a definite annual event. We do it if we can. We’re glad to know that some people see value in it.
      I agree that we need to do more publicity about it. We try to do better each time. Anyone who would like to be on our author’s list may email the Library Director their contact information and she will get the information to the appropriate person.
