Metavivor Authors' Luncheon
A week ago, I had the pleasure and honor to participate in an annual Authors' Luncheon in Annapolis, Maryland. It was sponsored by Metavivor, a wonderful organization which advocates for research funding for MBC -- metastatic breast cancer, a terminal illness. With some ninety persons, many of them cancer survivors, in the audience, seven authors discussed their books, the art of writing, the publishing industry, etc. The attendees purchased the authors' books, with a portion of the sales going to Metavivor, and the authors held a signing session.
Pictured above with me is Stephanie Verni, a professor at Stephenson University and author of the novel, Beneath the Mimosa Tree. The other writers on the panel with us were Laura Kaye (moderator), Stacey Bolin, Janie Suss, Sharon Solomon, and Martha Vincek.
