Meet the Authors

Bring books to life as your favorite authors step out of the page and onto the stage. Expand your understanding, harness the power of stories and continue the conversations that books inspire with thought-provoking presentations, author Q&As and book signings in Westerville and Central Ohio.

Throughout the year, authors of varying backgrounds and genres are invited by the library to inspire a love of reading, feature voices that energize community conversations and support the arts while providing an enjoyable literary experience.
