This event has been postponed. 

Join us at the Georgetown Public Library for the latest edition of "WLT's On the Craft of Writing." Author Kate Winkler Dawson will talk about how she gathers sources, organizes them, and then presents characters in her nonfiction books. Amanda Eyre Ward will discuss how she researched and wrote the first draft of her book, The Jetsetters, what she did when her editor didn't like it, and how she stayed the course to create a novel she's proud of. We'll end the event with Kate and Amanda in conversation with Becka Oliver, Executive Director of the Writers’ League of Texas. A book signing will follow. Lark & Owl books will also be on site selling books for the evening. 

This event is free & open to the public!
