North Bay bookworms will be in literary heaven this weekend, as the Sonoma County Local Authors Showcase and Symposium welcomes writers and readers for an informative and fun gathering. Fans of poetry, fiction, children’s literature and history will have the chance to put faces to their favorite writers. Founded by novelist Sabrina Rawson, the event includes talks from nearly 20 wordsmiths, including transformative self-help writer Tina Azaria, detective novelist Waights Taylor Jr. and Bohemian contributor David Templeton. Exhibitors like cookbook guru Michele Anna Jordan and a panel discussion on the business of writing will also inspire on Saturday, April 2, at the Rohnert Park Cotati Regional Library, 6250 Lynne Conde Way, Rohnert Park. 10am.
