Roslindale Branch, 4246 Washington St

Are you a first-time author with a book idea but doesn't know how to get published? Few people who aren’t seasoned veterans of the traditional publishing process understand how a book goes from a little germ of an idea you think up in the shower to a real, live, hefty object sitting on the shelf. This workshop, led by literary agent Sarah Khalil of Kneerim and Williams, will take attendees through the lifecycle of a book and how literary agents fit into that process, including tips on how to find one.
