We are also excited to have showcase authors Jennie L. Brown and Mark Wayne Adams conducting the writing sessions on Friday.”

Brown will present the Friday morning session, The Soap-On-A-Rope Mistake: Why Editing Matters, and Adams will be providing the afternoon session titled, AIM Kit: Creating an Author/Illustrator Media Kit.

All events are free and open to the public. The Bob Kirby branch is located at 175 Iron Skillet Court. Reservations are required for Friday’s writers workshop. To register, email kristie.lowry@wku.edu or call 270-745-4502.

SOKY Book Fest is a partnership project of Barnes & Noble Booksellers, Warren County Public Library, and WKU Libraries. For information, visit www.sokybookfest.org.
