This Saturday, the Dublin Library and the California Writers Club, Tri-Valley Branch, are co-sponsoring our first local author showcase! The public is invited to this free event, which will be held in the Dublin Library’s Community Room on Saturday, June 9th from 1-3 pm. 15 local authors will be here to mingle and talk about their book(s) with our community members. This event is appropriate for all age levels, as the authors write on a variety of topics, cover many different genres and audience ranges (from children – adults).

Many of the authors will be selling copies of their book(s) during the showcase, should anyone wish to purchase a copy of a particular title. Payment will be made directly to the individual authors (not the library). The California Writers Club will also have a table for anyone interested in learning more about the group. We hope that you will join us and come meet some of our local authors!

Authors may apply for a table at the showcase beginning March 1st and through April 5th. Applications are available at the Dublin Library or can be found here: Application

We have space for 12 local authors at this first showcase. Applicants will be chosen based on location (Tri-Valley residents will be be given first priority), and the intended audience of their book. We would like a good mix of audience appeal so that all ages can come to meet the authors. All applicants will be notified of their status for the showcase by mid-April. Authors are responsible for bringing copies of their book(s) to sell at the showcase, as well as any promotional material they wish to hand out. This will be a mixer style event, where each author has a table, and is free to speak to as many people as they wish at the event. The library and California Writer’s Club will handle publicity for the event.

For more information, please look at pages 3 and 4 of the application. If you have any further questions, please contact Mary Ayers-Hughes at mcayers@aclibrary.org or call (510) 608-1108.

Come to see principal singers perform excerpts from the Livermore Valley Opera’s forthcoming production of Giuseppe Verdi’s opera, Un Ballo in Maschera.  This free program will be presented on Sunday, February 25, 2018, from 2:00 – 4:30 p.m. in the Dublin Library Community Room, 200 Civic Plaza, Dublin, CA.

This popular opera contains a tragic love triangle, a sinister conspiracy, jealousy, betrayal, guilt, and forgiveness wove together with lighter moments that provide some relief in the manner of a Shakespearean tragedy.  Musically, this is one of Verdi’s most lyrically sophisticated operas.

Tenor Christopher Bengochea will be singing the role of “Riccardo.”  Soprano Sarah Cambidge will be singing the role of “Amelia.”
