I’m in Atlanta, Georgia this weekend, speaking at Emory University. I did my graduate work at Emory. Emory was a great place to study. The community is supportive, the graduate students well funded, and the weather always mild, if a bit humid and a bit hot. The nickname for Atlanta is Hot-Lanta. Definitely an apt moniker. Atlanta gets hot!
Emory University Talk
What: Panel discussion, “Pathways Beyond the Professoriate,” about how to leverage a Ph.D. into a non-fiction book.
So many academics want to be writers. They also want to write books that people will read. But academic writing isn’t always the most, shall we say, gripping… So how do you leverage your Ph.D. thesis into a book that people want to read? That’s what I’ll be speaking about to Emory graduate students and staff.
When: Friday, August 30, 2013, 12 p.m. – 2 p.m.
Where: Room E-338, Dobbs University Center (DUC) at Emory University
I’ve also been invited to give a presentation at the Decatur Festival of the Book, which is a fun-filled, exciting, intellectual, fascinating literary festival. If you’ve never been to the Decatur Festival of the Book, you’re in for a treat. It’s a great networking opportunity and an event that inspires creativity. You’ll meet so many interesting fiction and nonfiction writers and authors. Both the writers who speak and the writers who attend are fascinating.
What: Featured author
When: Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 12:30 p.m. – 1:15 p.m.
