Emerging Writers Presents: Local Writers Live
Westgate Branch: West Side Room
Join us for an evening with four local, published authors doing short readings from their books, and have a chance to chat and buy their books too!
Meet the authors:
Andy Gutman with the picture books Charlie the Caterpillar and Pop Lullaby. Charlie the Caterpillar was born out of a conversation that his wife (Lesley Gutman) and daughter (Riley Claire Gutman) had about how cool it would be to write a book about a caterpillar trying on fashion inside of its cocoon. Charlie is so much more interesting than Andy Gutman, who is simply of average height, maybe a few pounds overweight, and just some boring businessman!
Patti Smith with Head Over Feet a contemporary, feminist romance novel for adults. Rebecca Slater is running away from a stay in a mental health facility, a writing career that never got off the ground, and a dying best friend. She has nowhere to go, but nothing can stop her—until she crashes her car into a tree.
This is part of the monthly Emerging Writers Workshops, which offer support, learning, and advice for local authors.
