Show Your Work!:
10 Was to Share Your Creativity
& Get Discovered

Tonight our main man with the creative plan Austin Kleon is here with his new bestselling book, Show Your Work. He'll show us how to take the critical next step after we've unlocked our creativity to get our work out there and get known. The speaking portion of this event is free and open to the public. Wristbands are required for the signing and available only with the purchase of a copy of Show Your Work! from BookPeople. We'll begin distributing wristbands at 9AM on May 30.

In his New York Times Bestseller Steal Like an Artist, Austin Kleon showed readers how to unlock their creativity by stealing from the community of other movers and shakers. Now, in an even more forward-thinking and necessary book, he shows how to take that critical next step on a creative journey-- getting known. Show Your Work! is about why generosity trumps genius. It s about getting findable, about using the network instead of wasting time networking. It's not self-promotion, it's self-discovery that let others into your process. Then, let them steal from you. Filled with illustrations, quotes, stories, and examples, Show Your Work! offers ten transformative rules for being open, generous, brave, & productive.
