What do a children’s author with a new release, an action-adventure writer who pivoted during the pandemic to ghostwriting and a librarian have in common?
They’re all part of this episode of “Word.” It’s a podcast about literature in Arizona and the region, created and hosted by KJZZ’s Tom Maxedon.
We take a trip to the Just Read Local Author’s Fair that was held Nov. 2, at Burton Barr Central Library in Phoenix. The fair was the brainchild of Jeriann Thacker, adult services coordinator for the library.
Authors who exhibited at the fair that are featured in this episode include Shari Lopathian, Matthew Brenden Wood, Sean Ellis, Melissa Price, Darryl Dawson and Marcia Fine. We also talked to a range of attendees about why they decided to attend the fair. And at one of them is participating in NaNoWriMo.
