Local authors sought for event

Posted By on Mon, Apr 8, 2013 at 3:00 PM

Michel Sauret is seeking other Pittsburgh-based authors to join him at the inaugural Pittsburgh Authors Symposium.

The event, meant to introduce local writers to the community, will be held May 4 at — of course — Bruster’s Ice Cream of Ingomar, 9600 Perry Highway. What goes better with literature than ice cream?

As of last week’s announcement, Sauret said nine other other authors would be tabling at the Saturday-evening event, but more are welcome. While any published local author with a physical book to sell is eligible, Sauret says he is wrapping up the roster this week. There is no tabling fee.

Refreshments will be available (and not just ice cream). A percentage of Bruster’s sales during the event will benefit the Northland Public Library.

Interested authors should contact Marta Greca at [email protected].

Sauret is the author of 2012 short-story collection Amidst Traffic.
