Library Board Trustee Robin Wadley-Munier Invites You to Experience the Vegas Valley Book Festival
The Library District is a proud producing partner of the 12th annual Vegas Valley Book Festival, a celebration of the written, spoken, and illustrated word, and the largest literary event in the Las Vegas Valley.
This year’s Festival features more than 100 authors, book signings, workshops, vendor exhibits, spoken word performances and art exhibitions. Here are some highlights:
An Evening with Catherine Coulter
Wednesday, October 30 at 7 p.m. | Clark County Library
Catherine Coulter, New York Times bestselling author of more than nine book series, joins us as the opening keynote of the Festival. Making the New York Times list in 1988 with the contemporary romantic suspense, False Pretenses, Coulter has continued to hit the list more than 65 times. Alternating between suspense thrillers and historical romances, she’s written 71 books and has over 70 million books in print worldwide. Bombshell, the 17th book in her wildly popular FBI thriller series, was released July 2013 in all formats. Books will be available for purchase at the door and a book signing will follow the talk.
Vegas Valley Comic Book Fest
Saturday, November 2, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. | Clark County Library
The sixth annual Vegas Valley Comic Book Fest, the longest running comic book event in Nevada, celebrates comic book culture with workshops, panels, an artist jam, cosplay contest, portfolio reviews, a marketplace with local comic book stores and publishers, as well as delicious food trucks. A variety of comic book writers and artists will be available to meet and greet fans including Greg Rucka, Georges Jeanty, Warren Wucinich and many others. Fun for the entire family!
