Behind the Scenes – December 2107

Special Event, Special Event, Special Event

Saturday, December 2 gives you a chance to complete your holiday shopping. Wylie is sponsoring an Art Fair and Tree Lighting. Start the day at a huge craft fair at the Baptist Event Center, 200 Ballard Street with 100+ vendors. Grab some food: then go shopping.

The Wylie Art Gallery starts their Creative Gift event at 11:00 a.m. with Creativity for Kids. At 2:00 p.m. a watercolor artist gives a demonstration and guidance to budding artists. At 4:00 p.m. three authors from the Sachse-Wylie Authors Group offer insight for the gift of creative writing. Come early as parking may be chaotic. You don’t want to miss a minute of this interactive discussion about publishing.

Visit with the authors and artists. See you there.

Tulsa Event

 Be sure to read Resistance, about my fabulous trip to Tulsa in this issue.

Southern Methodist University Event

A friend and I attended the SMU event featuring Anne Lamott, prolific writer. Thirty-two-hundred people filled the McFarland Auditorium. She has a new book titled Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy. I’m eager for time to read it.

Private Book Club

I shared old photos I found AFTER I published Gift of the Suitcase. What a delightful group of fun and eloquent participants.

If you are choosing books for your book clubs, think of me. I customize each program.
