No, I haven’t been drafted to the Women’s National Basketball Association. A group of fellow book lovers have opened a branch of the Women’s National Book Association here in Charlotte. It’s been really interesting to find other book-related folk in town.
On Tuesday, September 15, we’ll meet for a networking event at M5 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. This event and WNBA are open to anyone who loves books. You don’t have to work in the business or even be a woman.
On October 7, I will be participating in a panel discussion at the Morrison Library. It’s entitled From Agent to Author: How a Children’s Book Gets Published. Agent Tracey Adams and fellow authors Quinlan Lee (also an agent) and Lisa Williams Kline will also be participating. The event runs from 7 to 9 p.m.
If you’re on facebook, search for our WNBA – Charlotte page for more information about the organization and about these events.
