CKPL Seeking Local Writers for Author Festival

Calling all Chatham-Kent authors! Chatham-Kent Public Library invites you to join us for the “Read Local: CK Author Festival” this May.

The “Read Local: CK Author Festival” will be held at the Chatham Branch on Saturday, May 2 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The Festival will be an opportunity for authors to meet readers and aspiring writers, connect with other local authors and to promote and sell their books.

Anyone from Chatham-Kent who has written and published a book, in print form or as an ebook, is welcome to apply. Due to space limitations, all authors are asked to submit an application to be considered for this event. Authors who have participated in past “Read Local: CK Author Festival” events are welcome to apply; however, preference will be given to authors who have not participated before. Please email

katemcc@chatham-kent.ca for an application. Applications are due by Monday, March 23. Authors can also contact the library for more information at 519.354.2940.
