Carolyn Haines will present a writing workshop at Smith Library.
Wylie's Smith Public Library is playing host to two popular published authors, Carolyn Haines and Kelley Armstrong, who are willing to share their secrets.
It's part of the library's WordSmith Author Series, planned for Saturday, May 27. Beginning at 10:30 a.m., Haines will conduct a writing workshop. She'll be joined by Kelley Armstrong for a panel discussion and Q&A at 1 p.m. Following the discussion, the authors will sign copies of their books. Participants may bring their own or purchase copies from Barnes & Noble staff members, who will be on hand.
