This is the first year the sixth annual event was held at the Spencer Road Branch in St. Peters.
In previous years the event was held at the Middendorf-Kredell Library in O'Fallon.
The change in location was because the number of authors has increased every year.

This year, with more than 100 mostly local authors (as well as many from as far away as Cape Girardeau and Rolla), the beautiful and spacious Spencer Road Branch was the perfect site for the event.
When I first read there would be more than 100 authors on hand, I wondered how the library would pull it off.
The rooms were roomy and laid out to encourage foot traffic.
The snacks were plentiful, and the library gave away several door prizes.
The library staff and volunteers did an outstanding job with this special event.
Doyle Suit, another C&C member, was not far from where we sat.
Sioux Roslawski and Candace Carrabus Rice were also nearby, and I was happy that I had time to chat with them and share a few memories and stories.
I'm looking forward to next year's event and meeting even more writers and readers. Hope to see you there too!
