This summer, Marianne K. Martin will appear at several events, to discuss lesbian literature; to talk about why she writes and how she finds the subjects for her books; to give advice to new writers about the business of writing; and to read from her new book, Tangled Roots, as well as sign.
At the National Women’s Festival, Marianne is the Featured Speaker. With author Sandra Moran, she will be discussing The Past As Prologue: Where We’ve Been & Where We’re Going, a presentation about the history of lesbian literature, the books that were instrumental to our genre — and how the genre is changing in light of recent cultural changes.
She will take part in two further events with Sandra: a workshop Now That I’m Published, discussing what authors can expect the publisher to do to market their book, and what should/could be done by the author; and Why We Wrote That, in which both will discuss their most recent novels, and explain how they chose the topics, and why they write.
Marriott Madison West Hotel & Conference Center, 1313 John Q Hammons Drive, Middleton, Wisconsin 53562.
Please visit Marianne’s table at the All American County Fair with Flair!, where she will be signing her new novel, Tangled Roots. The event takes place at Windover Women’s Resort, 3596 Blakely Rd, Owendale, MI.
