Local Authors will Discuss Writing and Publishing @ LSC-Tomball, Saturday, Sept. 6.

They say everyone has a book inside them just dying to get out, but once you write it, the question becomes how to get it into the hands of readers. This Saturday, September 6, 1:00 – 4:00 pm, LSC – Tomball Community Library will host an Author Date with three local writers who have done just that.

Come enjoy light refreshments and meet authors, Paul A. Bussard, Alberto Arcia and Alan Berkowitz as they discuss the ins-and-outs of publishing and the writing process.

LSC – Tomball Community Library, Room L-129.
Saturday, September 6, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Copies of the authors’ books will be available for purchase from the Friends of Tomball Library.
