This fall, the Free Library of Philadelphia will once again host its popular event series, Author Events, bringing major acclaimed authors to the area and showcasing local writers.

Each Author Event will be held in the Montgomery Auditorium downstairs in the Parkway Central Library. Highlights include a Q&A session with the author, and a book signing for all in attendance.

Select events are no charge, but for any requiring tickets, they go on sale Friday, August 19 at 10 a.m. so get them while you can! Tickets are available for purchase in single events, or a subscription package. They sell out very fast.

Highlights include, for ticketed speakers: Jeffrey Eugenides (November 1), Joan Didion (November 3), Harry Belafonte (November 4), Umberto Eco (November 10) and Tom Brokaw (December 8).

Free events include Anne Enright (October 4), Amos Oz (October 28), Chuck Palahniuk (October 29) and Norton Juster (November 5).

The library is so much more than stale shelves of manuscripts and so-over DVDs to borrow. Engage in the system’s awesome programming to see for yourself, and get a signed book to prove you were there!
