Third Thursday

Our Third Thursday program offers free and open to the public monthly discussions on the craft and business of writing. Each month, we focus on a specific topic of interest to writers and readers, bringing together four distinguished panelists for a conversation moderated by the Writers' League of Texas' Program Director.

** Unless otherwise noted, all meetings take place on the third Thursday of the month (except December) on the third floor of BookPeople.


July Third Thursday

Thursday, July 20, 2017

7pm start

at BookPeople in Austin, TX


"The Secret to Great Picture Books"

Every writer who is a parent or who once read picture books (which means pretty much everyone) has contemplated one at some point--and inevitably learned that it's not as easy as it looks. This panel will deconstruct the parts and structure of picture books, answer commonly-asked questions, and discuss the business of getting books published.





This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department. Visit Austin at
