Children's book authors and illustrators will have books for sale at this event and will be available to answer questions about their writing process. Additionally, there will be storytimes at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.
Authors attending include Michael Hale, author/illustrator of Bad Monkey Business; B.G.

Mesa Public Library supports local authors by hosting quarterly book fairs at the Main, Red Mountain and Dobson Ranch branches. Each fair has a different age group emphasis and will give Mesa residents a chance to learn about the writers around them. Mesa Public Library also features a local author book collection housed at the Main Library location.
