On Friday night I attended a reception for the 45th Annual Local Authors Exhibit sponsored by the San Diego Public Library. The purpose of the exhibit is to nurture writers, foster the pursuit of the writing arts and to create a great opportunity for the recognition of San Diego literary talents.
My Super Blog Buddy Sarah had attended this event the year her picture book “Red, White, and Blue Goodbye” was released so I had some idea of what to expect and rumor had it we would receive a medal.
The Lunch Thief by Anne C. Bromley
I was impressed by the diversity of books displayed. There were over 250 books ranging from simple self-published guide books to well known best sellers. I also recognized some books we have featured here on Writing on the Sidewalk.
I So Don’t Do Spooky by Barrie Summy
They had lovely harp music, champagne, coffee, hors d’oeuvres and yes, we did receive medals. I even met up with fellow author and San Diego SCBWI member Anne Bromley.
The Local Authors Book Exhibit runs the entire month of February, located in the lobby of the Central Library, just in case you are in the area and want to stop by.
