Local authors Sarah Layden, Bryan Furuness and C. Vaughn Mobley will be featured at Evening with Hoosier Authors, set for 6:30 p.m. Nov. 16 at the Carmel Clay Public Library.
“Typically, we will host just one author at a time. A lot of times they aren’t local authors. They’re more national authors,” said Liz Hamilton, CCPL foundation director. “We wanted to try this format out with our patrons to see if they like it. We’ll have all three authors sitting up at the front of the room. We’ll have a moderator who will lead the discussion and ask some initial questions. Once she is finished talking with the authors, guests can then ask their own questions.”
The evening will begin with a wine and cheese social session. It will conclude with book signings.
Layden will discuss her book, “Trip Through Your Wires.” Her articles and essays have been featured in publications such as Salon and Ladies Home Journal. She teaches writing at IUPUI and the Indiana Writer’s Center.
Mobley will discuss her suspense novel, “Suffer the Innocent.”
“I think the book is a little terrifying and a little scary,” Hamilton said. “She is writing a second book in this series, and it’s due to come out sometime next year. When she isn’t writing she works as a professional actress and singer.”
Furuness will speak about his book, “The Lost Episodes of Revie Bryson.” He’s an Indianapolis resident and teaches at Butler University.
The event is free but guests should register in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 317-814-3984.
