You may remember that I’ve become a member of the Program Committee for the Canadian Authors Association.
The committee is responsible for the annual conference, the Literary Awards, professional development of the membership, and something called the Roving Writers program.
I volunteered to be on the sub-committee for the Roving Writers and our first event will be in a scant week!
Author Lauren Carter will be coming to Sudbury as part of her book tour. So on Sunday, Oct 6, from 1-4 pm at the Parkside Older Adult Centre in the YMCA building, she will be delivering a workshop on Deep Character.
Here’s the poster with the deets (including how to sign up):
The CAA office will be sending me a copy of the participant list and I will be taking payment (cash or cheque only, please) at the door. The discounted fee of $25 applies to members of the CAA only.
Light refreshments (fruit, muffins, water, and juice) will be provided.
I can’t thank the Sudbury Writers’ Guild enough for their assistance in getting this event off the ground.
Following that, on Monday, Oct 7, Lauren will be at the south end branch of the Greater Sudbury Public Library as part of the first LUminaries reading series. This has nothing to do with the CAA or the Roving Writers, but I thought I’d spread the word.
She will, of course, have copies of her dystopian literary novel, Swarm, available for sale and signing.
Have a lovely evening!
