LEFT COAST WRITERS LITERARY SALON: Non-Fiction Panel with Mikkel Aaland, Joanna Biggar, Joan Steidinger and Linda Watanabe McFerrin (Moderator)
The fascinating and intriguing Non-Fiction Panel will be discussing the current state of the art at Book Passage Bookstore & Cafe in Corte Madera, California on Monday, June 4th, 2018.
We’re hoping we can continue a discussion that began at the Hawaii Book and Music Festival, here on the mainland.
Panelists include Mikkel Aaland, Joanna Biggar and Joan Steidinger. Linda Watanabe McFerrin will moderate and plans to address some of the most interesting points of discussion from the Hawaii panel. The writers will be talking about the anxiety riddled membrane that separates fiction and non-fiction, journalism and memoir, truth and lies. So join us! It’s going to be an enlightening evening.
