Writers panel on writing and publishing – 6:00-7:30pm
Join us for a panel of three local writers who will discuss the process of writing and publishing, including various publishing options beyond mainstream publishing. This program is part of the Adult Summer Reading program. The authors are:

Jill Vialet, founder and CEO of the national non-profit Playworks. Jill published her first novel, Recess Rules, in 2013.

Bruce Fessenden is a skier and climber, and co-owner of Fessenden Firewood. Crimson Coat is his first book.

Laurie Doyle is a writing teacher and a fiction writer who likes to mix it up occasionally with a little poetry and nonfiction.

There will be time for audience questions, and materials on publishing will be available, as well as books for sale.
