The Authors Fair will run from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16, in the auditorium at New Castle-Henry County Public Library.

“I’m excited for our second annual local authors fair with special keynote, Michele Israel Harper. Michele’s journey has been an astonishing one, and I can’t wait to hear her speak,” said NCHCPL Teen and Adult Services Librarian Krystal Stanich. “This is a great chance for our community to come in and meet/support our local authors.
