Klindt’s Booksellers hosts the annual Northwest Author Festival on Saturday, Sept. 10 from noon to 3 p.m.
Klindt’s is bringing 11 eleven regional authors, all with new titles, together for one day. Each author will set up throughout the store, where you are free to visit with them, have your books signed, and discuss their writing processes.
With authors spanning multiple genres, from local history to mystery, there will be something for readers of all ages to enjoy:
Jeff Alworth, “The Beer Bible” (Cooking/Beverages)
Jessica Blackburn, “The Echoing” (Young Adult)
David Jonathan Brown, “Quest for Forgiveness” (Historical Fiction)
D.C. Jesse Burkhardt, “Columbia River Gorge Railroads” (History)
