Morris Authors Collection
In the fall of 2007 the library began to assemble a research collection of the works of
Morris County authors, living and past. These writers either grew up in the area
(Gene Shalit) or spend the majority of their writing years here (Abner Doubleday)--
or both (Charles Haas). The non-circulating titles are accompanied by biographies and
news stories about the writers. Every two years (2008, 2010, 2012) we hold an
Authors' Day to showcase local writers and their work.
We welcome donations of works by these writers or you can "Adopt an Author," by
making a donation to the Library Foundation with which we can then purchase out of
print titles by local writers. We have identified 350 authors (and their 1,250+ books)
so far. Let us know if you are aware of other county writers who should be recognized
in the Morris Authors Collection.
