DOVER -- The Dover Public Library will host a local author fair on Saturday, April 19 from 1 to 4 p.m.

As part of National Library Week festivities, the fair will provide local authors with a way to promote and sell their books.

"We have been amazed at the number of published authors we having living in the Tuscarawas Valley," said Adult Services Manager Paula Fawcett. "The local author fair is an opportunity for the public to connect with the writing talent we have living next to us as friends, neighbors, and community members."

Any local author interested in participating in the local author fair should contact the library at 330-343-6123.
