Authors LIVE!

Authors LIVE!

Learn, grow and have fun attending this ongoing series. Hear nationally known, award-winning and best-selling authors present their newly published fiction and non-fiction works. Presented in partnership with Friends of the Highland Park Library and Friends of the SMU Libraries, these presentations are offered free to the whole community. No reservations are required*. A book signing follows the presentation for those who choose to purchase books*.

For those who are interested in meeting and talking with an author, and having a signed copy of the book, there is a reception preceding the main presentation and includes the price of the book ($30)*. So join us to hear some of America’s most interesting authors introduce us to new ideas and intriguing stories.

*Please note that the Art Garfunkel event requires a ticket for admission. Tickets are $28 per person and the ticket includes one signed copy of the book. $5 from each ticket will be donated to the Friends of the SMU Libraries and the Friends of the Highland Park Library. All books will be pre-signed by the author. The author will not be available for signing after the event.
