Four of our members, all of them published authors, will tell their own stories of what inspired them to write their book(s) and how they successfully delivered their book(s) into our world. Their publications span a wide range, from children’s books to the outdoors, to Retirement planning and the connections between Art and Mathematics.
This part of our meeting will be moderated by David Peyto, who will also be one of the storytellers. David is the author of a number of popular books about the many interesting walks within the Calgary City limits and has interesting family connections with, among others, Bill Peyto, after whom the famous lake is named.
The other 3 storytellers are:
Irene Naested, author of Art in the Classroom and Exploring the Math and Art Connection
Valerie Walker, author of 5 books about Headley the Hedgehog and at least 3 others.
Nell Smith, author of the recently published Retire to the Life you Love
As always, you will have a chance to meet and talk with other authors and self-publishers. Our members tell us over and over how much this has helped them along the writing and publishing journey.
We meet from 8:30 until noon on the last Saturday of each month. The meeting fee is $20 for members and $25 for non-members (cash or cheques only), payable at the beginning of the meeting. A full breakfast is included in the fee (the meal cannot be deducted from meeting fees because our room rental is based on the number of attendees).
Reserve for this session at MeetUp.
