We are beyond excited to announce “Inside the Author’s Studio,” a new series that takes you behind-the-scenes of an author’s life. Don’t you often wonder where creative artists work; how they acquire inspiration; what their daily schedule consists of, and so much more?
Prepare to find out the answers to these questions, and much more, at our inaugural event featuring Susie Ghahremani, award-winning author, illustrator, and artist. Get to know Susie in this intimate event, as she chats with Adventures by the Book founder, Susan McBeth, about her art, the systems she uses in her studio to keep herself accountable, her books, and the inspiration behind her new creation, Growth: a Journal to Welcome Personal Change, as well as how she retains focus during these trying COVID times.
You will join us behind-the-scenes via Zoom meeting (not webinar) so that you can interact directly with Susie and ask her questions and share your thoughts on what Growth you are looking forward to in 2021. After all, for Iranian-American Susie, Nowrooz (Persian New Year) is the perfect time to reflect on growth opportunities in your life, and armed with inspiration from Susie and a copy of Growth, it can be for you, too.
Your Adventure includes a copy of Growth: a Journal, signed bookplate, tax, shipping, and the opportunity to meet the author, in a unique behind-the-scenes virtual event.
