"Books & Authors is one of our most important events," saysMary Liz Curtin, co-owner of Leon & Lulu. "It's a great opportunity to share the joy of reading with children and teens who, all too often, have their eyes glued to iPhones and other electronic devices. Everyone can enjoy the chance to meet the author behind the story, learning more about their personal journey inspiring them to write the book," she explains. This year we're again working with the wonderful folks at theOakland Literacy Council, who provide the basic literacy and English language instruction necessary for adults in our community to find employment."
Books & Authors is a juried book fair featuring mostly Michigan writers. Guests can mix and mingle with 50 authors who will sell and sign books collectively more than 120 books. Authors will also read excerpts for guests. The event is free and open to the public. Proceeds from the event will again benefit the Oakland Literacy Council.
