Growing Room 2019 presents Alex Leslie

March 9 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Growing Room 2019 presents The Dead Book: What Happens When a Book Doesn’t Take, with Alex Leslie, author of We All Need to Eat. Also with Betsy Warland.

Moderated by Amanda Leduc.

We always hear about an author’s latest work—what worked for them, what successes they’ve had. But what happens when you’re a writer who has a project that, though completed, never goes anywhere? What happens when you’re an established author with a manuscript that gets turned down by a publisher and suddenly struggles to find a home? Listen to these writers talk candidly and openly about failure—the shapes that it can take, the surprises it can hold.

Cost: Pay What You Can (recommended: $12.50)
