Monday, June 18 @ 1 p.m. – The Writer’s Life with J.D. Webb

A woman wipes a smudge off her ATM screen one night. A small child sits on a bench outside a shop in a busy mall. A cool breeze from a quiet river wafts over a woman as she begins her work. What do these seemingly innocuous events have in common? They all resulted in a mystery novel. You’re invited to come learn how everyday life experiences can become the foundation of fiction. Author J.D. Webb tells how ordinary moments can be the start of a creative, enjoyable story. Join us for this fun and lively glimpse into the life of a writer. You might even be inspired to try writing your own narrative.
