Barrington and the surrounding area are full of amazing authors and storytellers: meet them at the Barrington Area Library's first annual Local Author Fair on Saturday, April 18, from 2-4 PM.

More than 25 authors have signed up to participate in what we hope will become a Barrington Area Library tradition. Enjoy author readings, panel discussions, book signings, and keynote speaker Sonali Dev, whose debut novel, A Bollywood Affair, has won honors from NPR, ALA, and more! You'll meet and hear from poets, illustrators, and memoirists, chroniclers of Barrington history, and creators of fiction both historical and futuristic. It's the perfect afternoon for every book lover! Books available for purchase and signing (hint: signed books make wonderful gifts!). Light refreshments will be served. Free and open to the public, but please register in advance, if possible.
