DANVILLE — The Danville Public Library, in partnership with Mad Goat Coffee, will present a series of local author discussions throughout the month of November in celebration of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month.)

As stated on its website, National November Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a “fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing.” Today, participants begin working toward the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 p.m. Nov. 30, according to information from the library. To become a participant, register at https://nanowrimo.org.

Local authors will discuss the art and process of writing, editing and publishing on select dates throughout November to assist and inspire NaNoWriMo participants — or anyone interested in the writing process.

Topics covered include historical research, finding motivation, submitting manuscripts to publishers and “showing, not telling.”

These events will take place at Mad Goat Coffee’s new location at 701 S. Gilbert St. and the library.

For a complete listing of dates, times and participants, visit the library’s website. Event listings also can be found on the library’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/DanvillePublicLibrary), Mad Goat South’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/MadGoatSouth), or by calling or stopping by the Library.

The library, 319 N. Vermilion St., is open 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday. The website address is: www.danvillepubliclibrary.org
