Just what is the AWW LitSalon? It's a new program that is a fantastic, fun way to enjoy an afternoon with fellow literature lovers, hob-nob with a celebrated author, and support Antioch Writers' Workshop... all at once! And get a tax deduction, too! Our goal is to hold two or three AWW LitSalons, on various literary topics and in interesting, unique settings in the Greater Miami Valley, each year.
Our next LitSalon is Sunday, December 3, 2017, 4:00-7:00 p.m., and features Kristina McBride, who has published four novels for young adults - THE TENSION OF OPPOSITES (2010), ONE MOMENT (2012), A MILLION TIMES GOODNIGHT (2016), and THE BAKERSVILLE DOZEN (2017). Kristina is a former high school English teacher and yearbook advisor, as well as an adjunct professor at Antioch University Midwest and Wright State University. Kristina has a thing for music, trees, purses, and chocolate. You might be surprised to learn that Kristina was almost kidnapped when she was a child. She also bookstalks people on a regular basis. Kristina lives in Ohio with her husband and two children. You can learn more at www.kristinamcbride.com.
The LitSalon will be hosted by and held at the home of Mindy Hoffbauer, who is the publicist for the bestselling novelist W. Bruce Cameron, and for the film based on his novel, "A Dog's Purpose." Directions will be provided to attendees after registration closes. The event will be em-ceed by Ron Rollins, Editor of the Dayton Daily News. The afternoon will also feature tasty treats and beverages, and a fun raffle auction... all in support of the Antioch Writers' Workshop!
All this... for the modest cost of $25.00 per ticket! (Fifty percent of the ticket cost is tax deductible.) We will also offer raffle tickets for fun prizes--items perfect for holiday giving to those on your gift list, or to yourself! Raffle tickets are $5.00 each.
