For the third year, the Anoka County Library is connecting Local authors with readers. The Northtown Library was host to 22 authors on October 6, including keynote speakers Sarah Stonich and Michael Kleber-Diggs.
“This isn’t just for the community it’s for the authors to grow and learn and meet other people and network,” said Andrew Wylie, a Collections Strategies Manager with Anoka County Library.
11-year-old Samuel Jacobs published his first book “Samspirations” this year. It’s a collection of his artwork.
“I think I’ll write another book because I like writing books and expressing things and you can pretty much do whatever you want when you have a book,” Said Jacobs.
Wylie says everyone has a story to tell, “These people all started as people who had never written a book before, now some of them have published three or four books anybody can do this and that’s the beauty of this.
