New in 2019, we are excited to announce the start of the White Oak Author Tour! Six times a year, twice at each Branch Library, authors who write about a variety of topics and genres will give after-hours talks and book signings. These will be true author receptions with light appetizers and wine, which makes this a perfect event for nights out by yourself, with a loved one, or with a group of friends.

These evenings are adults only events for those 21 and older, and you will need to sign up. Here is what we have planned for the first three events. Click the author’s name to go to the blog post to read more.
