Dahlonega Literary Festival - March 28 and 29, 2015

Looking ahead to the coming weekend, I wanted to share this fantastic opportunity to mix and mingle with some literary greats.  This coming Saturday, I will be making the drive up to Dahlonega to attend the 2015 Dahlonega Literary Festival. Included in the schedule is a panel focused on writing children's books on Saturday morning (Writing and Illustrating Children’s Books, Panelists: Mark Braught & Lynn Cullen, St. Luke’s, Rm. 104). 

Check out the full details of the event.
