The Huntsville-Madison County Library Foundation (HMCLF) offers several author events each year in order to bring awareness to the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library. These events are great opportunities for our community to be entertained by, learn from, and engage in meaningful conversation with best-selling authors of every genre. Author events typically consist of a reading or talk by the author, a question & answer period, and end with a book signing.
Some favorite authors from the recent past include Sean Dietrich, Lisa Wingate, Homer Hickam, and Greg Iles. The Library Foundation loves connecting authors to the great reading community here in Madison County, all while supporting the HMCPL with proceeds from these events.
