Author of The Dining Car, his sumptuous telling of “a story of service, serendipity, and second chances,” Eric Peterson will round out our 32nd annual San Diego conference schedule. As our Sunday afternoon Special Guest Speaker, Eric will share how he navigated the turbulent tides of landing what Publishers Weekly effuses, “Peterson’s second book is like a meal prepared by a top-tier chef, great individual ingredients coming together to form something even better,” such exquisite publication. It’s a yummy tale to be told, and we’re looking forward to hearing it.
Both the Schedule At-A-Glance and Interactive Schedule have been updated to reflect our “wintry” weekend of workshops and overall writerly whatnot. It’s only a couple of weeks away so if you haven’t already, start planning your personal journey today.
Recent Good “Muse”
Books recently out from SCWCers include Lois Joy Hoffmann’s sublime In Search of Adventure and Moments of Bliss: The Long Way Back, the third and “gripping conclusion to a grand adventure that took Lois and Günter Hofmann over 34,000 miles around the world on a 43-foot catamaran” … The Center Of The Universe Is Right Between Your Eyes But Home Is Where The Heart Is, an “in-depth analysis of human perception, shamanism, visionary states, cognitive neuroscience, plant and animal consciousness, and sacred geometry” from Matthew J. Pallamary … Mason’s Missing, the first in a new detective series from Teresa Burrell … and the introduction of another international thriller series from Dennis Bown, Stones. Good job, and best of success to all!
