AU4

Please join us for Authors Unlimited 4 on April 25, 2015 at 10:00-3:00pm.  The event, taking place at St. Joseph’s College in Patchogue, celebrates reading by connecting teens and authors. It is a free full-day program open to everyone, but teens and tweens get preferred seating! Attendees will get the chance to meet dynamic authors of young adult literature first at an author panel and then in smaller breakout sessions afterward. Books will be available for purchase with time for autographs at the end of the day! Teens who attend can earn community service by attending and writing a review for the Authors Unlimited blog!
