Kentuckiana Authors is holding a book fair benefiting Family & Children’s Place, featuring award-winning children’s writer Meaghan Fisher and 12-15 area authors who write for children and young adults.
The book fair, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., EDT, Saturday, April 11, 2015, will be at the agency’s Family Service Center, 525 Zane St., in downtown Louisville.
Kentuckiana Authors is a group of authors who, according to its website, “want to be informed … want to meet our readers, meet our fellow authors and promote our work.” The event will benefit Family & Children’s Place, which works to prevent and end child violence, abuse and neglect in Kentuckiana and help children and families heal.
- Meaghan Fisher, author of such books as, “Owlie Learns to Fly,” “Tyler the Fish Saves Lake Erie” and “Mousekabitz.” Her books have won Readers Favorite, Creative Magazine Preferred Choice and Creative Magazine Seal of Excellence awards, among others.
- Kyri Demby, author of “Simon the Self-Controlled Seal,” and “Lori Biscuit, the Musical Detective.”
- Mysti Parker, author of “A Ranger’s Tale.”
- Tytianna Smith, author of the three-volume “Sweet Pea and Sugar Tea’s Country Family Adventures,” series.
This is the first Kentuckiana Authors Book Fair benefiting Family & Children’s Place, but the authors group and agency hope to make it an annual event.
