  1. Turning Fact into Fiction Writing Workshop with Gwen Florio

    July 11, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ Large Meeting Room

    Learn the ins and outs of creating fiction from real life, without alienating your family or attracting the attention of lawyers. With exercises to help bring characters to life, lend meaning to events, and jump-start the writing process. As a journalist, Florio dealt in facts for nearly 40 years. She turned to fiction in 2013 with the publication of her mystery novel, Montana. The sequel, Dakota, followed the next year, and the third book in the series, Disgraced, is due out in March 2016. Please sign up by visiting the Library's Information Desk or calling 447-1690 ext 5.
