Howard County January Chapter Meeting
Meet children's author Pamela Love, and stay for the post-holiday party!
On January 17, prolific children's author Pamela Love will present Writing and the Wonder of Hidden Things. Ms. Love will discuss the essentials of writing and submitting to children's magazines and picture book publishers; her writing philosophy; and the genesis of some of her most successful ideas.
Then mingle for an hour at the post-holiday party! Refreshments will be served.
If you bring a new or gently-used book for Howard County Domestic Violence Center, guess what? You get an extra door-prize ticket! Did I mention there will be door prizes?
All of this will be happening at Sunrise Columbia (6500 Freetown Road) from 7 PM to 9 PM.
