Publishing workshops continue

The Publishing Workshop Series at the Truckee Library co-hosted by Bookshelf Stores, Inc. and Friends of the Truckee Library, will continue through May.

The four-session series is designed to allow local writers and artists who make a living at their craft to share their knowledge and insights from their years of success.

All sessions will be held at the Truckee Library on Wednesdays, from 7 to 9 p.m. The series is designed to offer information as well as network opportunities for participants. The $10 fee will compensate the presenters and benefit the Friends of the Library.

On March 28, Tom Lippert, photographer, and Laurel Hilde Lippert, writer and editor, provided a look at their respective freelance careers in photography, writing, and editing, and will discuss how working side-by-side has benefited both of them.

Award-winning illustrator Susan Guevara will discuss “Breaking into the Business of Children’s Book Illustrating” on April 11. Among the titles illustrated by Guevara are “Not One Damsel in Distress: World Folktales for Strong Girls,” “Chato and the Party Animals” and “My Daughter, My Son, the Eagle, the Dove: An Aztec Chant.”

Ellie Huggins and Dan Wendin, owners of Coldstream Press, will explain how they came to start a publishing company in Truckee, and what they’ve learned about publishing over the years, on April 25.

Joanne Meschery began her writing career penning the first history of the town of Truckee. Since then, she has published three novels, “A Gentleman’s Guide to the Frontier,” “In a High Place,” and “Home and Away.” Join us on May 9 for an illuminating evening with Meschery.

Space is limited: call the Library at 582-7846 to reserve a place for the next session.
