Kline’s keynote will cap a day in which readers and aspiring writers can interact with several published authors, ask them questions about their writing journey, and attend workshops about the craft of writing.

Participating authors include Funky Winkerbean writer and illustrator Tom Batiuk, local newscaster Romona Robinson, “Dead Key” and “Unclaimed Victim” author D.M. Pulley, and more.

The showcase begins at 11 a.m. in the college’s Arthur S. Holden Center. Authors will have their books available for sale and signing. Throughout the afternoon, people can join workshops led by the authors in attendance.

Kline’s talk will begin at 3 p.m. at Lake Erie College’s Morley Music Hall. She will be available for book signing and photo opportunities following her presentation.

GCPL's Fun Bus Bookmobile will be on site from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.
