You're Invited: Asheville SCBWI Schmooze

The local Asheville writing group The Secret Gardeners is hosting a Schmooze for aspiring and published children's book writers as well as readers, illustrators, and anyone who just likes literature and delicious cheeses. It's a time for those of us in the children's book world--or who are interested in becoming part of it--to get together and, well, schmooze. 

I was a member of The Secret Gardeners for several years, and they are some great ladies!
