Welcome

The Durham Region Local Authors Database has been created and maintained by staff of the Ajax Public Library.

Writers are documentarians of historical, and current, popular culture. Using their words, writers provide sketches of: trends; community values; contemporary technologies; and, political and legal mores. Authors write to educate, entertain and edify. The works of a community’s authors add content, and value, to the complete cultural history of any community.

A local author is one who lives, or lived, in any Durham Region community, while writing and publishing their books.

A Durham Connection is a writer who once lived within Durham Region.
