They are celebrating with a series of events featuring best-selling authors. All events are held at the library, and are free and open to the public. They are sponsored by Friends of the University Place Library and Pierce County Library Foundation.
Books by the featured authors can be purchased at the events from Tacoma’s illustrious King’s Books.
