Authors Uncovered

Access to books and the authors who wrote them.

The only thing greater than reading a book is hearing from the person who wrote it. At Authors Uncovered, you’re offered a front-row seat to the minds of those who’ve put great stories and research onto the page.

  • Ask the author your most pressing questions
  • Meet other fans of the books you’ve read
  • Purchase the book or bring yours in to have it signed by the author

Authors on tour


Nefertiti Austin | November 5 | Reserve your seat
Austin is a fictional novelist turned non-fiction writer with her new memoir, Motherhood So White - A Memoir of Race, Gender and Parenting in America. The author has broken barriers in the African-American community with her work. She will discuss the stereotypes of single, black motherhood and raising children of color in racially charged, modern-day America as she presents her latest book in Sacramento.

Books will be available for purchase, with a book signing following each visit. All visits from authors on book tour are held at Central Library.

Yes, but very briefly. When you reach the signing table, you’ll have a brief interaction with the author while they sign your book. It's up to the author if photos will be allowed.

Who sells the books?

We partner with various local book stores, from Avid Reader to Barnes & Noble.
