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.
