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.

Meet the likes of Karen Abbott, author of The Ghosts of Eden Park; Catherine McKenzie, author of I’ll Never Tell; and local Jessica Strawser, of Forget You Know Me.

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.
