Indie Author Day

Join Montclair Public Library to celebrate our local writing community! Indie Author Day, a nationwide event sponsored by BiblioBoard, is designed to bring local indie writers together to meet and learn from each other.

The public is encouraged to attend and meet dozens of local indie authors, poets, and graphic novelists, and to discover new talent. Local writers will be selling their materials on-site from 11am to 2pm for visitors to pick up their next favorite book.

In addition, from 11am to 2pm, visitors will have the opportunity to create a tiny book with assistance by The Creativity Caravan, a local arts organization!

At 3pm, there will be a lecture on book marketing and promotion by Mike Onorato, Executive Director of Publicity at Smith Publicity.

Below is the schedule of events:

11am-2pm: Local author booths and miniature book-making with The Creativity Caravan, a Montclair-based arts organization.

3pm-4pm:  Intro to Book Publicity: How Authors Can Become Part of the News, Mike Onorato (Executive Director of Publicity at Smith Publicity).  In this presentation, Mike will define and lay out how PR is different than advertising, how authors can become part of the news cycle (and what that looks like), what authors can do to increase media attention and buzz for their book, and the role of social media.
