On Saturday, August 27th, the Paul Sawyier Public Library hosted the 9th Annual Gathering of Authors. An intimate and free event to the public, the Gathering is a celebration of Kentucky’s rich literary tradition and featured gifted writers who play an integral role in servicing readers throughout Frankfort and the Commonwealth. Authors from across the Bluegrass were invited to sell and sign their works as well as carry on a dialogue with attendees about their craft. The Gathering was an excellent opportunity to meet some of your favorite authors in a casual, comfortable atmosphere.
Due to the construction going on at the library this year, the event was held at the Frankfort Women’s Club on Washington Street. Many of the authors we spoke to preferred the venue change. The building offered more room to spread out and offered a better “flow” to meet the authors.
