In 2017, Brampton Library proudly launched the Local Authors Showcase, passionately championing new and emerging authors in Peel Region and facilitating a meaningful connection between them and avid readers. As the showcase enters its sixth year, it continues to flourish, providing authors with an exclusive presence in both our physical and digital collections.
The Showcase encompasses a wide range of genres, reflecting our commitment to celebrating our community's cultural heritage and the power of storytelling. From local history to poetry, mystery to romance, and children's books to personal narratives, this diverse collection showcases the richness of our literary landscape.
Join us on June 17th at Gage Park during the Brampton Farmers' Market from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. for the unveiling of the 2023-24 Local Authors Showcase. Discover the works of 55 unique authors, with over 70 new titles to explore. It's an exceptional event that promises a remarkable lineup of talented authors and captivating stories.
We extend our heartfelt appreciation to all the authors who have contributed to this year's showcase. Your creativity and dedication to the craft of writing continue to inspire us. We also express gratitude to our Selection Librarian, Julia Huang, and the entire Collections and Marketing team for their diligent efforts in curating and promoting the Local Authors Showcase.
Brampton Library takes immense pride in fostering and highlighting the incredible talent within our community. Together, let's champion the power of literature and support the vibrant literary community in Brampton.
