The Marble Falls Public Library’s Author Talk series is back in a big way.

“We wanted to bring in some more well-known authors, those who have a following,” said Brittany Cayness, the library’s adult program coordinator.

And they’re doing just that with Lauren Friedman, the guest speaker for the October 4 program, which is 4 p.m. at the library, 101 Main St. Admission is free.

Based on Friedman’s name in the fashion world, you might want to arrive early to make sure you get a seat. Friedman is a fashion blogger, writer, artist, stylist, and illustrator. She’s written and illustrated three books — “50 Ways to Wear a Scarf,” “50 Ways to Wear Denim,” and “50 Ways to Wear Accessories.” She’s sold more than 200,000 books, and her work has appeared in Travel + Leisure Magazine and The Washington Post.

“We’re really excited to have her for Author Talk,” Cayness said. “She has a lot of followers and is very popular. One of the goals is we want to bring in some authors who might bring in people from outside the area.”

Friedman, who is from Ann Arbor, Michigan, could do just that. Her fashion ideas help women make the most of simple items.

A ubiquitous material, denim has been around for years, yet Friedman breathes new life into how women can make use of it in her “50 Ways to Wear Denim” book.

In her latest book, “50 Ways to Wear Accessories,” Friedman explores how to get the most out of gloves, belts, purses, jewelry, and more.

At the Author Talk, Friedman will have several of her “50 Ways” books available to purchase at $14.95 each and for signing. The library also has copies of her books to check out. Having a fashion expert at the October 4 program is a great lead-in to the 2019 Diamonds in the Ruff Fashion Show and Luncheon, which is noon-2 p.m. Thursday, October 10, at the Marble Falls Public Library. Tickets are $25 and available at the library.

The clothing from the fashion show comes from the Marble Falls Library Thrift Store and is available for purchase. All proceeds from the show and thrift store benefit the library.

Call the library at 830-693-3023 or stop by in person at 101 Main St. for more information or to get a library card.
