A visit with an author is a wonderful way to connect people with the magic of books and reading. At the Viridian we host regular author visits and author-focused events.

“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.” ― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
