CWBF Authors Panel: How (and Why) I Write

Adults & Teens

Hear from three acclaimed authors about their writing methods and techniques, and why they do what they do, during this Central Wisconsin Book Festival panel discussion!
Authors Callie Bates, Liam Callanan and Charles Hughes will join us to share insights about the craft of writing, as well as what led them to a career in writing and what keeps them typing and editing.
Bates is the author of the Waking Land fantasy trilogy, published by Random House imprint Del Ray, and also a published essayist. Callanan is the author of one short story collection and three novels, the most recent being the award-winning "Paris by the Book." Wisconsin native Hughes is the director of the Lynne and Henry Turley Memphis Center at Rhodes College. His most recent book is "Country Soul: Making Music and Making Race in the American South," and he's currently at work on a book about African-Americans and professional wrestling.
If you're an aspiring writer, or just curious to hear about how others approach their craft, you'll want to join us for this interesting discussion! We'll have time for questions as well.
Free and open to the public, no registration required. Call 715-261-7235 for more information.
