Library to Host Local Author Expo in 2020!

Largo, MD – Calling all local authors! The Prince George’s County Memorial Library System (PGCMLS) will be hosting a Local Authors Expo on April 25, 2020, from 10:30 am - 4:30 pm at the Bowie Branch Library. At this all day event, library customers will have the opportunity to meet our local authors, browse and purchase their literary works. To participate, submit your application and two (2) copies of your book no later than January 1, 2020.

Mail the two copies of each book you plan to promote at the event for review by the Selection
Committee to:

Prince George's County Memorial Library System
ATTN: Local Author Expo
9601 Capital Lane
Largo, MD 20774

Your application will be considered incomplete if the Selection Committee does not receive your application and two (2) copies of your books by January 1, 2020. If your book is already a part of the PGCMLS collection, please do not send additional copies. Works submitted for consideration will not be returned.

Although all completed author applications will be reviewed, priority will be given to current Prince George's County residents due to a limited amount of space. Selection will also be made with consideration to the diversity of the genre and age level of the material. All authors will be notified of their status by February 1, 2020.
