    WARWICK - Meet authors from your own neighborhood and the surrounding area at a “Local Authors Book Fair” on Sunday, April 10, from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Albert Wisner Public Library’s community room. The library will celebrate local literati with a display and book sale for self-published as well as nationally published authors living in Orange, Rockland, Westchester and Pike, Pa., counties. The event is described as an opportunity for the authors to meet their loyal and potential readers and for the community to sample and buy books written by local talent. “It is the library’s mission to connect people to each other,” said Reference Librarian Laurie Angle. “This event will provide a forum for the community to discover the talented writers who are their neighbors.” The library also will present a discussion by Tina Traster and her husband, Rick Tannenbaum, titled “Love and Publishing.” They will explain how with her husband’s help she was able to turn her New York Post column “Burb Appeal” into a Kindle e-book and then a print-on-demand paperback and how the journey in doing so was both a career and marital boost for them. Traster’s book “Burb Appeal: A collection of humorous essays” is based on her Post column and contains stories of how she embraced and navigated life in a rural suburb north of Manhattan. Besides being a Post columnist and award-winning author, Traster, is a Huffington Post blogger and her work has appeared in more than forty publications including The New York Times, Family Circle, Ski Magazine and on NPR.
