Meet the Authors

 
To inspire readers and writers and to encourage the love of reading, the Westerville Public Library (often in partnership with the Westerville Library Foundation) has committed to bringing engaging and inspiring authors to the Westerville and Central Ohio community.
 
Each event has featured an author presentation along with opportunities for the audience to ask questions and get books signed.
