    Local authors in the spotlight

    The indoor set and the outdoor crowd can keep pretty busy in eastern Loudoun this weekend. The Cascades Library is hosting a Local Authors Fair for the reading and writing audience, Claude Moore Park is providing some family-oriented outdoor workshops and Boy Scout Troop 950 is offering a Sunday breakfast option.

    More than 20 area authors will be on hand to discuss their books and share writing tips during the Local Authors Fair at the Cascades Library on Saturday, March 29, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

    The day includes author readings, presentations and book signings by writers of fiction and nonfiction for adults, teens and children. Sessions include a presentation by Kathryn Erskine, winner of the National Book Award for the young adult novel, “Mockingbird,” and a panel discussion on writing for children presented by members of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.

    Claude Moore Park celebrates spring with a return to the outdoors in three skill-building sessions: family archery, campfire cooking and Cub Scout fishing activities.

    Family archery, for ages 8 and older, provides instruction in groups of two, followed by archery games for aim practice. The session takes place on Saturday, March 29, from 1 to 3 p.m. Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult; adults must be registered to participate. Registration is $15.

    The Campfire Cooking Workshop, also on March 29, presents a look at different ways to cook simple and fun recipes by campfire. All needed items are provided; bring your curiosity and your appetite. The workshop takes place from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Registration is $10.

    On Sunday, March 30, the park offers an opportunity to complete the Cub Scout fishing belt loop and parts of the fishing pin with a session on fishing basics and some fishing at the park pond. The session takes place from 1 to 3 p.m. Registration is $9
