Grab a beer and a slice of pizza and join two new voices in literary fiction for our New Writers event. Brian Van Reet and Hannah Kohler will be discussing their experiences writing a novel and the process of getting published for the first time. Following the September 11 attacks, Brian Van Reet dropped out of the University of Virginia and enlisted in the U.S. Army. His debut novel, SPOILS, is inspired by his experiences of war telling the story of a soldier and her captor. The Outside Lands by Hannah Kohler takes us from 1960s California to Vietnam telling the story of people caught in the slipstream of history, how we struggle in the face of loss to build our world, and how easily and with sudden violence it can be swept away. Meet two authors to look out for in 2017, discover the various ways to become a published author and be sure to come ready with your questions.
