    November is National Novel Writing Month, and Pima County Public Library supports the people who write the books that we share with everyone. Here are some events that you’ll want to get on your calendar if you’re a writer or a writer-to-be.
    Alexis Powers
    Book Signing Event, Sunday, Nov. 10, 1-4 p.m., Oro Valley Public Library, 1305 W. Naranja Drive.
    Writer and instructor Alexis Powers invites the community to meet some of her former students, now published authors, at this book signing event. Powers has been presenting a hands-on workshop twice a month at the Oro Valley Public Library. The writers attending the book signing event represent several different genres, including novels, memoirs, poetry, children’s books, and unusual topics of interest. “Having so many of my students publish their books is truly a miracle,” said Powers, a published author herself.
