The Tillamook County Pioneer Museum will host its second annual Mook Book Fair this Saturday, Nov. 17, showcasing local authors and those who write about the North Oregon Coast.

“We have invited even more local authors this year,” said event organizer Carla Albright. “As well as regional favorites Grant McOmie and Adam Sawyer who will be bringing their books to sign and sell.”

Books of all kinds, from mysteries, graphic novels and coffee-table books to travel, historical fiction and poetry, will be available to buy, and some of the authors will read from their works.

Returning from last year’s event are local authors Sally Rissel and Diane Colcord, Rebecca Harrison, Joe Blakely, Anne Sweazy-Kulju, Julius Jortner, Jerry Sutherland, Deborah Lincoln, Neal Lemery, Jessica and Tami Waldron, Alexandra Mason, Elki Powers, Athena, Adam Sawyer, Doug Fir, Mikayla Ebel and Joan Cutuly.

New to the fair this year are Robert Russell, Lana Hechtman Ayers, Patty Brown, Mark Smith, Brian Cameron and Peter Byrne.

Also featured this year is the Pioneer Museum’s own historian, Jennifer Thiele, who has written biographies on John Joseph Englehart and Sister Lucia Wiley.

The fair will run from 10 am to 2 pm at the museum, 2106 2nd Street, with free admission.
