San Diego is the home of many thoughtful, creative residents. Proof of this can be seen at downtown’s San Diego Public Library, where a special exhibit features books by local writers that were published in 2015. It’s an impressive visual tribute to local writing talent. Works of fiction and nonfiction alike are on proud display. Congratulations to all!

  1. Thanks for including “Christmas in San Diego” among your photos. I am hardly a legend, but there were real legends at the Local Authors reception including keynote speaker and Local Author Literary Achievement Award recipient Brian Selznick. The Academy Award nominated movie “Hugo” was based on his endearing book, “The Invention of Hugo Cabret.” Judy Reeves co-founded The Writing Center in the 1990s and San Diego Writers, Ink in the early 2000s. Several of the books on display were written by women who have participated in Judy’s workshops.
