Aspiring authors are invited to learn, create, and write together at this notable event hosted at the New Castle-Henry County Public Library.
A Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award honoree will join the community as part of this statewide speaker program. Larry D. Sweazy will lead a writer’s workshop at the New Castle-Henry County Public Library from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 25. This workshop is part of the Indiana Authors Awards Speaker Program, powered by Indiana Humanities and made possible through the generosity of Glick Philanthropies.
Larry D. Sweazy is a critically acclaimed author and Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Awards honoree. He was born and raised in Anderson, Indiana, and is the author of 19 novels, 34 short stories, and over 60 non-fiction articles and book reviews. Larry was 49 when his first novel, The Rattlesnake Season (2009), was published.
This event, The Big Secret: Starting and Finishing Your Novel, is free to the public, with registration required. It will be an interactive experience and attendees should come prepared to write in class.
Library staff are looking forward to this event as noted by Director of Adult Services, Mary Hammons. “We’ve had many requests for writing workshops, so we were thrilled to receive this grant to host Larry Sweazy. We hope participants will come away energized and ready to start or complete their novel.”
Indiana Humanities is an organization that connects people, opens minds and enriches lives by creating and facilitating programs that encourage Hoosiers to think, read and talk. This year they awarded 30 nonprofit organizations (libraries, schools, museums, etc.) the opportunity to host an honoree of the Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Awards.
The Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Awards celebrate the best books by Indiana authors written in eight different categories and published during the previous two years.
