The City of Suffolk will hold an unique event that captures the hearts and minds of literary lovers. The 2016 Mystery Authors Festival takes place Saturday, August 13 at the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts.
This one-day festival showcases multiple best-selling mystery, suspense, horror, paranormal, romance and women’s fiction authors. The event is filled with books signings, author meet & greets, readings and so much more. Also for inspiring writers, a new author expo will take place which includes workshops and panel discussions.
SMAF started in 2014 when the city contacted mystery author, Richmond’s Ellery Adams, about a book signing. Adams then rounded up some fellow mystery authors and the festival was born. The inaugural event had 11 authors, 2015’s had 24, 2016 is expecting over 30.
The event is free and open to the public. Click here to get a full schedule of events.
