Join Old Town Books for our next installment of Read Write Now, a series of skill-building talks for readers and writers, on Saturday, March 30 at 5:00pm. Memoirist Abby Maslin will share her writing journey from starting a blog to publishing a book.
In 2012 Maslin's life changed forever when her husband was mugged and suffered a traumatic brain injury. She shared her family's story, post by post, to help face her new reality. Her debut memoir Love You Hard: A Memoir of Marriage, Brain Injury, and Reinventing Love will be published by Dutton in March 2019.
This event will include a publishing talk, a group writing exercise, and audience Q+A. Attendees will leave with renewed inspiration and practical steps to take towards crafting personal stories to share online and in print.
This is a ticketed event. Admission price includes a signed copy of Maslin's book.
