Follow the Trail!
The Trail of Authors, Arts and Architecture event is held to promote our Authors and Artists in the area.
Some of the events include book signings, art exhibits, presentations by authors, writers’ workshops, notable speakers, live entertainment, tours of local areas, a great variety of food and the opportunity to network with the various communities along Byway 136.
Many times the event is held in conjunction with another community event. The goal is to appeal to all ages and involve a large number of participants.
Several communities plan to participate in Trail of Authors this year.
