Paranormal authors to hold panel, workshop at Norman Public Library
GO AND DO
Paranormal author panel, writing workshop
When: 2 p.m. July 10
Where: Norman Public Library's Lowry Room, 225 N. Webster Ave.
Readers interested in the paranormal can attend a panel of authors who write in the genre to discuss their writing process and inspiration.
Paranormal authors Tara Hudson, Sharon Sala and Steven E. Wedel will host an author panel and writing workshop 2 p.m. July 10 in Norman Public Library's Lowry Room, Pioneer Library System spokesman Christian Potts said.
The event is one of 10 stops on the group's Pioneer Library System Tour this summer, Potts said.
The authors primarily write paranormal and horror stories for teen readers and Young Adult genre fans and have varying levels of experience and works published, Potts said.
The panel will open with a discussion about the paranormal genre and where the authors get their inspiration, Potts said. They also will discuss their writing process from the first draft to getting published, he said.
Attendees also will have the chance for questions and book signings with the panel, Potts said.
Potts said the panel was formed because patrons have previously showed interest in the genre and these authors in particular. A similar panel came to Norman Public Library last December and had a turnout of around 50 people, Potts said. Potts said he expects this year’s panel, which will be open to the public, to draw between 50 and 70 people.
