1:00 – 4:00 pm – Read Indie!, at the Paul Sawyier Public Library, 319 Wapping Street

Self-publishing is not what it used to be! New technologies and changing attitudes have helped make it the fastest-growing sector in today’s publishing industry. As an affordable, timely option that offers greater creative control, many writers are now choosing this avenue for their work.

In recognition of this growing trend, the Library will host Read Indie!: A Self-Publishing Showcase on Saturday, March 25. Stop by the Library between 1:00pm and 4:00pm for this special book signing event that will feature local and regional self-published authors representing a variety of genres. Meet the authors, purchase some of their books, or even just chat about the world of self-publishing!

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Diane Dehoney at 352-2665×108 or Mark Kinnaird at mark@pspl.org.

4:00 – 7:00 pm – Lacey Caroline, at Talon Winery, 400 Gordon Ln, Shelbyville

Talon Winery Logo

The skateboarding Tomboy from Jersey kicked off her start in music as the front woman for the pop rock band, “The Best Week Ever”. Gaining momentum, Lacey wrote and toured with the band, opening for global names like Gavin DeGraw and Bon Jovi, and playing stages as big as Metlife Stadium in her home state of New Jersey. Lacey remembers, “I’ve never felt more comfortable during a performance than I did on that giant stage in front of thousands of people. I knew right then I was doing what I was supposed to be doing”. With the release of her debut solo EP, “Songbird”, Lacey knew country music is where she ultimately belonged. The stories that are told in country music are the stories people have lived; they are real. Bringing her pop and rock energy, Lacey’s focus is to tell her story for other people to connect their stories to. After relocating to Nashville, TN, Lacey quickly fell more in love with the style, and began writing with experts in the genre. Through these writer connections, the small town girl has gone on to play historic Nashville venues like The Bluebird Cafe more than 5 times within one year.
