My pal Steve Hamilton, author of the Alex McKnight and Nick Mason series, will be chatting with me about books, writing, Michigan, and the Notre Dame-Michigan football rivalry in Traverse City, MI, Thursday, June 27, as part of the National Writers Series. Details here.
The National Writers Series is a year-round book festival and a destination for conversations with authors from all genres. Hundreds of people attend these events at the lovely City Opera House, and tens of thousands more listen to the conversations on a subsequent broadcast aired on Interlochen Public Radio and on community television.
Since Doug and Anne Stanton founded the Writers Series in 2009, they have awarded $42,000 in scholarships—three each year—to college-bound seniors and juniors. Winning a scholarship gives recipients a better chance of gaining entry into one of the country’s prestigious universities. The NWS also has developed a high school creative writing program in partnership with the public school district to provide a home for passionate writers.
Steve and I hope to see you there.
