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, May 21, 4:00-7:00 p.m., and features Jessica Strawser, author of a gripping debut novel, "Almost Missed You," that was recently named to the March 2017 Barnes & Noble Best New Fiction Short List. What's more, Jessica is the Editorial Director of Writer's Digest. She will also be our featured speaker at our July 8 Saturday Seminar to kick off our 32nd annual week-long summer program! Learn more about Jessica at www.jessicastrawser.com
The LitSalon will be hosted by and held at the home of Amelia Robinson, an AWW Board Member, Dayton Daily News reporter, and popular "Smart Mouth" columnist. 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 $20.00 per individual or $35.00 per couple. (Fifty percent of these fees are tax deductible.)
