In this world of e-books, publishing conglomerates, and contracts so unreadable only a lawyer knows what they say, it’s sometimes nice to have a chance to sit and talk about the book business with someone who has broad experience. This is your chance to ask any question you have about writing, publishing, proposals, marketing, and making a living at writing. Join us for an evening of talking books and writing.

 Brian has only worked as an agent for the last two years, but brings a wealth of other experience to the conversation:Brian-1-170x200
