Please forgive the hiatus — as I’m sure many of you know by now, the STL Scribblers group has changed hands since founder Eric Lundgren moved out east. I’m the new facilitator, Lainie Formby, and I’m happy to have been asked to join such a welcoming community of writers!
I have some activities planned this fall that I’m eager to share, the first coming up in just over a week:
SLPL is excited to join over 200 other libraries across North America in celebration of Indie Author Day, an event designed to bring local writing communities together to participate in author panels, book readings and signings, workshops, presentations, and more.
Central Library presents The Pros (and Potential Pitfalls) of Self-Publishing, a panel of Missouri-based authors at the ready to talk independent authorship. Join St. Louis local Nicole Evelina (Daughter of Destiny, Been Searching for You), Svetlana Grobman of Columbia Public Library (The Education of a Traitor: A Memoir of Growing Up in Cold War Russia), and SLPL’s own Joe Schwartz (The Games Men Play, Ladies and Gentlemen: Adam Wolf and the Cook Brothers) as they detail their forays into self-publishing, take questions, and sign books Saturday, October 8th! Light refreshments will be served.
Then, be sure to stop by Central again one week later — Saturday, October 15th — for the third annual St. Louis Small Press Expo. Learn more here. #STLSPEx16
In the meantime, keep an eye on this page for indie authorship content in the days leading up to the panel!
Questions, concerns, or suggestions for Scribblers going forward? Email (firstname.lastname@example.org), call (314-539-0396), or come to the next STL Scribblers meeting on Wednesday, October 19th. We love new stories, and new faces!
