Ellen Plumb’s City Bookstore, 1122 Commercial St., is hosting an author meet and greet with a variety of authors connected with the Emporia State campus from 5-7 p.m. Dec. 8.
Some of the featured authors at the Meadowlark Meet and Greet event include ESU’s own Kevin Rabas, chair of the English, modern languages and journalism department and Kansas poet laureate, and Hannah Jeffers-Huser, senior secondary social science education major.
“The event will be a mingling event where you can actually meet and converse with the writers in person,” said Ralvell Rogers II, senior English major.
Because the meet and greet features such a variety of authors and books, the event is designed to appeal to a large audience in the community.
Jeffers-Huser will be promoting her newest novel “What Lies Beyond,” which is a fantasy novel.
Meadowlark is a publishing company out of Emporia. Meadowlark has published books written by ESU faculty and students, which is why the event is so connected with the university.
“Students should come because it would be a great way for them to meet community members and listen to some amazing authors read from their book,” Jeffers-Huser said.
Jeffers-Huser’s book can be purchased for $17 at the meet and greet event, according Marcia Lawrence, owner of Ellen Plumbs.
