Writer’s Symposium Featuring Inspirational Authors

by Jillian Boudreaux, Adult Programming Coordinator

Join us for an inspirational author symposium from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, November 16, at the Slidell Branch. Three authors will be on a panel and answer questions about their latest works, discuss the writing process and anything else audience members would like to know.  The panel will include Elizabeth (Liz) Hilby, Joy E. Rancotore and Ellen Emerson Brown.

Liz Hilby has published books through indie and traditional publisher, Pen It Publications, LLC. She has a column in Louisiana Road Trips Magazine that shares stories of her outings as a geocacher. Hilby writes from the wisdom she learned as a student of International College of Ministry where she received her degree in Christian Counseling.

Joy E. Rancatore writes fiction, nonfiction and everything in between. In addition, Joy is a blogger, speaker, teacher, editor for fellow Indie Authors and co-host of the QWERTY Writing Life Podcast.

Ellen Emerson Brown has an MA in Folklore and Mythology from UCLA. Her thesis was on Family Lore. She wrote a series of published articles about the public pageantry of the Catholic Church in Southern Spain. She has been published in The Wanderer and The New Oxford Review.

The event is free and open to the public, and registration is encouraged. Seating space is limited to adults. Register online or by calling the library at 646-6470.
