WLT hosts Third Thursday each month, featuring discussions focusing on specific topics of interest to writers and readers, bringing together distinguished panelists for conversations moderated by a WLT staff member.

In June, join us for a conversation with three writers who have published or will publish debut novels this year. We’ll discuss the journey so far including everything from knowing when you’re ready to submit, to querying literary agents, to the book deal & all of the preparation for publication to the post publication experience, including the highs and the lows and the in-betweens of having a book out in the world. This is a special opportunity to hear about everything that makes up the unique and thrilling experience of publishing your debut novel from the fresh perspectives of three authors who are still navigating this journey.

This event features the following authors: 

Dalia Azim: Country of Origin

Kimberly Garza: The Last Karankawas

Jenny Tinghui Zhang: Four Treasures of the Sky

This conversation will be moderated by WLT Executive Director Becka Oliver.

Plus, this summer, we’ll be reading all three of these debut novels in our annual WLT Summer Bookclub. We’ll get together on Zoom to discuss each of the books in the coming months. Each discussion will be led by a WLT staff member, plus a special guest or two. Dates to be announced.

By purchasing a book from BookPeople, you are not only supporting a local, independent business, but you are also showing publishers that they should continue sending authors to BookPeople.
