In conjunction with National Library Week, local author, publisher, and literary agent Dr. Maxine Thompson will speak about electronic publishing on Saturday, April 13, 2013, at 12:00 noon at the Inglewood Main Library's Gladys Waddingham Lecture Hall, 101 W. Manchester Boulevard. The event is free and open to the public.
Thompson is the host of ArtistFirst.com, a weekly internet radio show that provides a platform for underrepresented writers. Since 1998, she has written, edited and served as a ghost writer for over one thousand books, many of which have made the bestseller list. She is a novelist, poet, columnist, short story writer, and book reviewer. Some of her works of fiction include Never Knew Love Like This Before, Hostage of Lies, and the L.A. Blues series. Thompson will provide informative handouts, as well as have copies of her books available for sale.
"When you consider all of the tablets and e-readers on the market today, it is clear there is a benefit to knowing about the intricacies of electronic publishing," said Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts, Jr. "I encourage aspiring writers, individuals looking to self-publish and those who simply want to know more about the e-publishing industry to attend this lecture."
National Library Week is April 14-20, 2013.
