Barbara Burnett Smith Aspiring Writers Event

If you live in the central Texas area (or even if you live farther away), you’re invited to come to the Sixth Annual Barbara Burnett Smith Aspiring Writers Event to have fun and meet other writers.

Sylvia Dickey Smith will receive The Sage Award from the Barbara Burnett Smith Mentoring Authors Foundation. The Sage Award is presented to an author who exemplifies Barbara's spirit of inspiration, support and mentoring.  Sylvia will give the Keynote Speech.

Dave Ciambrone, Jaime Roton, Joan Upton Hall and Val Taylor will present "A Mystery in Four Parts".  Last year's "A Mystery in Four Parts" had bodies on doorsteps, foghorns on Lake Travis and the practicing of heaving bosoms.

"A Mystery in Four Parts" will be followed by 'Best Worst First Lines of a Mystery', featuring the Sage Award winner. Last year’s winner Micqui Miller glowered, fought and knocked herself out--not to mention that she was delectable, decapitated and dead in multitudinous and multifarious ways. Only the Shadow knows what lies in store for Sylvia.

'Best Worst First Lines' also serves to introduce our Mentor Authors and Aspiring Writers. 

Refreshments will be provided by Starbucks Coffee and Dream Bakery.

So, stop by for fun, dreamy goods, authors galore, and….it’s all free. It starts at 2 p.m. at the Barnes & Noble located at the southeast corner of Loop 360 and Bee Cave Road, Westlake.
