Books by the Banks is the ultimate bookworm bash, featuring authors of all stripes ranging from children’s writers to memoirists and mystery novelists to scribes who offer some local flair.
In between meet-and-greets and book signings, stop by author talks and writing panels covering everything from graphic novels and getting your foot in the door to plotting a mystery and a beginner’s guide to self-publishing.
10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26. Free admission. Duke Energy Convention Center, 525 Elm St., Downtown, booksbythebanks.org.
