Local Author Showcase Deadlines

Douglas County Libraries is fortunate to be approached by many local authors who would like to share their work with library patrons through presentations and signing events. DCL is a passionate advocate for literacy and lifelong learning, and supports local authors in their efforts.

To serve both local authors and library patrons, Douglas County Libraries offers quarterly Local Author Showcase events. Each Showcase features 12 authors; each has five minutes to talk about his or her book(s). After all the presentations, authors may meet, talk with, and sell their books to those attending.

The Local Author Showcase Application has more information on requirements, deadlines, show case dates and other services offered to local authors.
