Support Local Authors This Weekend

Write On, Door County will host its second Door County Author and Book Fair on Oct. 1, 10 am – 3 pm. The free, family-friendly event will take place outdoors under a large canopy tent, where authors and attendees will be protected in the event of inclement weather.

The fair welcomes 34 authors and creatives writing in children’s literature, fiction, nonfiction, poetry and playwriting, along with a local literary review.

Each author will have books available for purchase. Not all will be able to accept credit cards, however, so attendees are encouraged to take cash or checks. The afternoon also includes author readings and conversations. Find more details at
