   1:00 PM  -  3:00 PM Indie Author Day  
   

During the Inaugural Indie Author Day, the Thayer Public Library is joining libraries from all across North America in hosting local author events with the support of the Indie Author Day team. In addition to these local programs, each library’s indie community will come together for an hour-long digital gathering at 2 p.m. Eastern featuring Q&A with writers, agents and other industry leaders.

As indie publishing continues to gain ground, there are many authors who are still struggling to find their footing in the publishing world and get discovered. By working with their local library to build an audience within their communities, authors are able to find local fans that will help carry them to greater renown.

And now, with all of the tools and guidance now available in libraries and beyond including SELF-e, Pressbooks Public, BookLife, Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA) and more, libraries are in a better position than ever before to truly make an impact in the lives and careers of local writers. As the self publishing and indie industries grow, writers who might not have been discovered through traditional channels are able to get their voices heard.
