Contact: Sean Jones |

After a three-year pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Wichita Public Library’s Local Author Day returns on Saturday, August 20. Local Author Day celebrates local writing talent and invites local authors to meet new fans and for readers to learn about authors in Wichita.

“We are excited to welcome back our local author community to the Library,” said Sara Dixon, Adult Programming Manager for Wichita Public Library. “Local Author Day is a great opportunity for the community to see the writing talent right here in Wichita.”

An author panel featuring authors Grant Snider, Dana McCall and Amanda Wen will take place from 10:30-11:30 a.m. After that, from 2-4 p.m., an author expo will provide an opportunity for the public to meet Wichita authors and purchase copies of their books.

Local authors who wish to participate in the author expo should sign up online at

Local Author Day is held at the Advanced Learning Library, 711 W. 2nd St.
