Library Author Series

Library Author Series Banner

Bud Werner Memorial Library presents an ongoing series of author talks. These are free community events that traditionally gather in Library Hall, but are currently hosted virtually via Crowdcast. Over the years, a diverse, award-winning range of authors has visited our public library in Steamboat Springs, Colorado to speak about their literary works and writing processes. A diverse range of award-winning authors continues to speak about their literary works and their writing processes. Each talk is followed by a Q&A, and books are available for sale courtesy of Off the Beaten Path Bookstore, Steamboat's local independent bookseller.
