Local Authors

Our community is blessed with an incredible number of writers. We have everything from illustrators of delightful children's books to Pulitzer Prize winning poets; novelists to gardeners; spiritual healers to historians! These pages represent a sampling of this ever-growing number of artists.

If you live locally and have recently published a book, we'd be delighted to review your finished work and see if we can carry it. Due to limited space within the store, we cannot guarantee every submission will be accepted, but we will do our best! Take a look at our consignment page and bring in a completed form with your review copy the next time you're in.
