For its first virtual event, Briggs Library welcomes authors Christine Stewart-Nuñez and Steven Wingate for a special evening of conversation.
The duo will discuss the theme “Becoming a Writer” on May 20 at 7 pm. Wingate and Stewart-Nuñez will cover a variety of topics related to life as a writer, such as the non-writing tasks of a published author (like promotion and speaking engagements), and how writers have been affected by COVID-19. They’ll have tips for beginning writers and touch on their own recent works. There will be time for Q&A at the end. Join the Zoom event at https://sdstate.zoom.us/j/92256228811. No prior registration is required for this free public program.
