Do you like to listen to local authors and watch indie films? Are you interested in keeping up with what local writers are up to? Do you believe in supporting authors who own their rights? Join us! Come to hang out with DC-area booklovers and local authors.
The Local Authors Scene is an informal grassroots movement of authors who own the rights to their work & local intellectuals who are interested in hearing what authors have to say- the story behind the story. Every month we provide a location for a local author to talk about their work, followed by a discussion of how local authors produce their books and spread the word. The general public is always encouraged to come listen to our authors & stay for the following discussion.
Browse the calendar of book events posted by local authors on http://CrowdPublish.TV! Sign up for a FREE web site on http://CrowdPublish.TV, a local open source project. Authors can list their books, blog, videos, & events. Readers & book clubs can review books & post their blog and events.
Welcome Local Booklovers & Culture fans!
