Join us for a special evening of conversation with authors Katie Sise, Fiona Davis and Fran Hauser. The panel will discuss their process, their struggles and their personal journeys — including the ups and downs on everything from working within a publisher’s budget to writer’s block. Ask all the questions that you’ve always been scared to ask. (How do I score a book deal?!??)
