Ocean Park Library will host Authors Among Us, an event featuring an interactive panel discussion linking local authors and readers, from 1-2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 4.

Authors Among Us is a Surrey Libraries’ initiative to bring together community members with a shared interest. The goal is to provide a venue for local authors and avid readers to connect with each other and to discover resources available in the city.

“Ocean Park is so pleased to host this event this year. We have such a diverse community of writers and we are excited by this year’s lineup,” Niki Penz, librarian and event committee member, said in a news release.

The panel event is to feature “a diverse group of speakers who live and write here in the community” –  contemporary romance novelist Kaylea Cross, nature photographer Frank Townsley and children’s author Christine Hayden.

To register, call 604-502-6449. For more information, visit http://surreylibraries.ca/programs-services/5690.aspx
