    The Fox River Grove Memorial Library is happy to announce their nominee, local author Heather Bentley, is a Top 3 Finalist in the Soon to be Famous Illinois Author contest with her latest book, Sweetest Heartbreak.
    In this statewide contest, which is coordinated in collaboration with the Illinois Library Association (ILA) and Reaching Across Illinois Library Systems (RAILS), librarians judge self-published fiction by Illinois authors to select and promote a winner. Authors must be nominated by an Illinois library, and sponsored work must be written in the adult fiction genre. Of this year’s 46 entries across the state, Heather Bentley’s Sweetest Heartbreak, nominated by the Fox River Grove Memorial Library, has been selected as a Top 3 Finalist. A winner will be announced on Thursday, April 26 at 1:00 p.m. at Fountaindale Public Library. More information about the contest can be found at soontobefamous.info.
    Sweetest Heartbreak and Beautiful Lies, Heather’s first book, are available at the Fox River Grove Memorial Library and through Amazon.
