Save the date for Authors Unlimited 5 on April 16, 2015 at 10:00am-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 and will receive five hours of service! There is an exit survey they can fill out and in return receive a certificate at the end of the event. Books will be available for purchase with time for autographs at the end of the day!
