The Avid Reader regularly features local authors for readings, book signings and discussions. Davis is home to fantasy writer Kim Stanley Robinson, Max Byrd, the author of the critically acclaimed Jefferson and Jackson novels, bestselling fiction/thriller writer John Lescroart, and Ted Puntillo, creator of the popular children's book, The Toads of Davis: A Saga of a Small Town, and Dandy Gilver mystery author Catriona McPherson, to name just a few.
Of course, we can special order titles by local favorites, but our shelves typically carry the most recent publications by Davis writers.
