About the Event
Our “Writers Talk” will feature two fantastic and award-winning authors, Susan Meissner and Yona McDonough. Both of these fabulous authors' most recent novels, Susan's Stars Over Sunset Boulevard and Yona's The House on Primrose Pond, tell stories with dual narratives; their characters' lives intertwine through intricate coincidences of time & circumstance, creating vibrate and compelling works of fiction.
Both Susan & Yona have had extensive and vast writing careers, encompassing a multitude of genres and forms of publication. Find out what it's like to be an award winning children's author, novelist, and a fiction editor, like Yona, or a columnist and newspaper editor turned multi-published author, speaker, and writing workshop leader, like Susan.
Event will include a dinner of pizza, salad, bread, wine, tax and gratuity, as well as, Q&A, book signing, and the opportunity to speak intimately with Susan & Yona. Bring your questions, your curiosity, your enthusiasm, and your writer's spirit to get the most out of this special event. And stay tuned for our new AuthorPreneurs™ Membership program, coming soon.
