Apply for a Space to Share and Promote Your Writing at Local Authors’ Fair

BEAVERTON, Ore. Beaverton City Library will host our 7th Annual Local Author Fair in 2021! Typically held in May, this event is moving to fall 2021 with the intention of hosting an in-person event.

If you are a local author with an interest in promoting your latest work at the Local Author Fair this year, please check the library website for updates at

The Local Author Fair is a free book fair highlighting the work of talented authors in the tri-county area. Writers from Washington, Multnomah and Clackamas counties are invited to apply for a space to share and promote their latest work, including enthusiasts of all genres like adult, young adult and children’s literature. Participating authors will receive their own table where they are welcome to discuss and sell their books, keeping all proceeds for themselves.

In return for their involvement in the fair, the library typically requests that each author donate two books. One book will be raffled off to attendees of the event and one book may be added to the library’s collection. Donated books not added to the collection will be sold by the Friends of the Library to support library programs and services. Although donations are not guaranteed placement into the library’s collection, they are sincerely appreciated and will otherwise be put to good use.

Don’t miss out on this exciting chance to share your creativity and accomplishments with those around you!
