WLT Presents One Page Salon LIVE WEBINAR

12/5/2020 From 8:00 PM CST to 10:00 PM CST




Registration for this event is now closed. We will be livestreaming One Page Salon on our YouTube page! CLICK HERE!

One Page Salon (called "the best literary evening in town" by the Austin American-Statesman) is the brainchild of novelist, screenwriter, and comedian Owen Egerton. Four outstanding writers will read one page from a work in progress - which means the audience will be among the first to hear original new material from these talented folks. The brilliant and funny (and brilliantly funny) Owen Egerton will emcee.

For this last One Page Salon of the year, we'll be celebrating the WLT with some pretty wonderful readers and some great giveaways and a last chance bidding frenzy on our 2020 Silent Auction

Our readers for the evening: Salima Alikhan, J. Evan Parks, Gina Springer Shirley, and James Wade. You can find their full bios below. 

PLUS, we'll have some very special guest appearances (Michael and Stephanie Noll, Kirby Kim, and more!)!

We hope you can join us for this end of year celebration. It wouldn't be the same without you!

RSVP and we'll send you the link. This event is free and open to all.
