Library hosts local authors to celebrate 375th

Discover some of Milford’s talent June 11 when the Milford Public Library celebrates Milford’s authors in honor of the city’s 375th anniversary.

Writers from the community will share their works, including a children’s author who creates and writes about crossword puzzles, a romance writer, an author of classic car books and more.

The event will run from 5-8 p.m.

Throughout the library, authors will be arranged at various tables, ready to sign books, share some insights, or talk about the writing process.

A fitness author plans to lead participants around the library for a gentle workout.

In the Children’s Department, families will have the opportunity to create puzzles with professional puzzlemaker and Nutmeg Award nominated author of the “Winston Breen” series, Eric Berlin.

Janet Lawler, author of “If Kisses Were Colors” and “Tyrannoclaus” invites all to join her in a fishing game to celebrate her new book, “Ocean Counting,” published by National Geographic.

Bonnie Feuer, author of “Goliath’s Secret” and Michelle Hydeck, author of “Wings Up,” which was the recipient of a Purple Dragon Book Award, and many other authors will also be present to share their books and experiences about the writing process and getting published.

For those in our community who are aspiring writers, there will be a “literary slam” hosted by the Milford Writer’s Group. People may bring unpublished work and read a little of it.

Participating authors include: Joseph Carvalko, Michael Dooling, Patrick Foster, John Gilmore, Linda Gottlieb, Michelle Hydeck, Frank Juliano, Dorothy Ricci, the Walnut Beach/Myrtle Beach Historical Society, Joan Wolf, Michael Wood, Eric Berlin and Janet Lawler.
