September 20, 7 PM EST
Join us Monday, September 20, 2021 at 7 pm EST (5 pm Mountain Time) for an online author reading and discussion, with our own Lisa Black as MC! But her scheduling goof is your windfall, since we will have five amazing authors: Margaret Mizushima, Allen Eskens, Vera Kurian, Karen Cleveland and Hank Phillippi Ryan.
Come eat, drink, & ask questions! Authors will share insider stories, writerly tips, and dish the latest on their new books.
Following a brief introduction each of our guests will talk about their work, and then read for about three minutes followed by Q&A.
Bonus! This month’s Rogue Reads will feature a giveaway! One lucky winner will receive a copy of Allen Eskens’ The Stolen Hours. Just register for the event to be entered.
The first 100 who sign up to be in the virtual room will have the chance to ask questions live. Once registered you will be sent a link to use to log in. Everyone else can catch the event by clicking on Facebook Live, where you can ask questions via comments. The Rogues will be monitoring the chat throughout the evening, so come prepared.
As a special treat, each of our guests has paired a favorite snack with their favorite drink providing a recipe for an enjoyable evening. Drinking will commence at the start of the show!
Next month tune in on October 18th when we will talk with Lisa Unger, Lee Goldberg and Lee and Andrew Child.
