When the COVID-19 pandemic forced the Des Moines Public Library to close its doors & cancel all in-person programming in March 2020, our annual visiting speaker series, Authors Visiting in Des Moines, was also canceled. But we are pleased to announce that AViD is back — and it's going virtual! We are working hard to finalize a very special 2020-21 virtual AViD lineup — a group of award-winning, bestselling authors that will include some of the speakers who were planning to visit us last season.
Register to reserve your spot & receive your Zoom invitation prior to the event. This program is a moderated presentation. Library staff will monitor the submissions & pass as many questions as possible to the author. Disruptive or disrespectful behavior may result in removal from the program. This program will be recorded.
