Meet the authors of Burrow Press at Writer's Block Bookstore

Posted By on Wed, Aug 19, 2015 at 11:44 AM

What if we treated authors like rock stars? Surrounded by bodyguards protecting them from shrieking fans, bundled into black Escalades with tinted windows before you even had a chance to ask for their autographs? Some novelists may have to take precautions – best-selling writers like James Patterson and Diana Gabaldon probably get mobbed in public – but isn’t it nice to know that our hometown heroes are still accessible to us? Two hours of civilized conversation with Nathan Holic, Pat Rushin and Vanessa Blakeslee, all of whom have books out now on Burrow Press that you should be reading, is yours this evening
simply for showing up, no backstage pass or meet-and-greet ticket required. I bet they’d even take a selfie with you.

6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 20 | Writer’s Block Bookstore, 124 E. Welbourne Ave., Winter Park | 407-335-4192 | | free
