The Chattanooga Writers’ Guild, City of Chattanooga Office of Multicultural Affairs and the Chattanooga Public Library will hold The Chattanooga Readers and Writers Fair 2018 on Saturday. The free event will be held at Chattanooga City Library, 1001 Broad St. in Chattanooga from 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
The Chattanooga Readers and Writers Fair gives local authors/writers, artists and poets the opportunity to showcase their work, while also promoting the importance of literature in the community.
The fair has approximately 30 local authors scheduled to be in attendance.
Many authors will have readings of their work on the main floor auditorium, book-related children’s activities on the second floor, vendor booths with readings on the fourth floor and the front plaza will host an open mic with food vendors.
As a follow up to the City’s Books with Berke project, participants will be able to visit the Mayor’s Book Club booth and create swipe books and journals inspired by Steal Like an Artist, by Austin Kleon.
The open mic will be held from noon-1 p.m. in the front plaza of the library.
