Shaler High School alumna A. K. Downing, author of the young adult novel “Into the Air”, will join a talented group of 20 authors and 30 artists at the Shaler North Hills Library on May 20 from 10am-3pm.

In addition, the festival will showcase beautiful works of art which will be available to purchase.
