Authors Unlimited 2018 will be taking place on Saturday, April 28th from 10am-3pm (registration and doors open at 9:15am) at St. Joseph’s College in Patchogue. Teens earn community service credit for attending this event, which celebrates reading by connecting teens and authors. It's a free program where teens and tweens get preferred seating!
Attendees will get the chance to meet dynamic authors of young adult literature first at an author panel and then in smaller breakout sessions afterward. The authors attending this year are Arvin Ahmadi, Patty Blount, Sarah Beth Durst, Amy Giles, Jessie Janowitz, George O'Connor, Eliot Schrefer and Kara Thomas. Books will be available for purchase with a chance to have them signed at the end of the day.
