Shaler North Hills Library set to host 3rd annual Artists & Authors Festival

| Wednesday, May 3, 2017, 9:00 p.m.

Shaler Area High School alumna A. K. Downing, author of the young adult novel “Into the Air,” will join a talented group of 20 authors and 30 artists at the Shaler North Hills Library on Saturday, May 20, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The third annual Artists & Authors Festival will be held in the library's community room and will highlight visual and written talent from the Pittsburgh area. Authors will be selling and signing books, as well as discussing their writing processes and publishing choices. In addition, the festival will showcase beautiful works of art available to purchase.

“There is more local talent in the North Hills than people may realize,” says Downing, now a Bradford Woods resident. “It's an honor to be included in the event at SNHL. I visited the library with my grandmother as a child and have watched it grow into an award-winning facility over the years.”

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
