 COMING AUGUST 2, 2014!                          

2014 Virginia Writers Club Annual Symposium

Navigating Your Writing Life: Finding Your Way

Keynote Speaker: Kathryn Erskine

Kathryn Erskine spent many years as a lawyer before realizing that she’d rather write things that people might actually enjoy reading. She grew up mostly overseas and attended eight different schools, her favorite being the Hogwarts-type castle in Scotland. The faculty, of course, did not consist of wizards, although . . . how did the headmistress know that it was "the wee redhead" who led the campaign to free the mice from the biology lab? Erskine draws on her life stories and world events to write her novels including Quaking, an ALA Top Ten Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers, Mockingbird, 2010 National Book Award winner, The Absolute Value of Mike, a Crystal Kite winner, and Seeing Red, a novel set immediately after the Civil Rights era that questions who we were then and who we are now.
