Chelmsford Library patrons now have a new way to research books and authors: Literary Reference Center.
Searchable from either your home or the library, this database has full-text information on thousands of authors and their works. Content is broken down into a number of categories (plot summaries, synopses and work overviews, author biographies, literary journals, poems, short stories, classic texts, author interview and more). All search results are gathered into convenient tabs for easy organization.
Information can best be found in one of two ways:
Other features include a Literary Glossary (for definitions of literature-related words), a timeline of works and their historical context, a research guide, help with citing sources, and frequently-updated books and author highlights.

BookTour.com lists which authors are on tour, and where all of their appearances will be. You can search by author, book or location, and results include both in-person events as well as virtual events.
This website is relatively new and still growing, but you should be able to find at least one important event on it.
