Come by CRYSTAL Books and Gifts to attend their “Off The Shelf Author Series” on Thursday evenings throughout the summer during the Downtown Farmer’s Market. It is a free event that is open to the public and is a great opportunity to meet local authors while enjoying informative and entertaining presentations by them.

On Thursday, June 28th., from 6pm to 7pm, the store will be hosting two local Authors that evening. If you are a person who has ever considered writing or a avid reader who is just curious about the process, this event is for you. Jodi Gallegos, author of A Shine that Defies the Dark, will be discussing how authors find the inspiration for their stories. Jodi will discuss how everyday events can inspire and even enhance your writing.

Denae Christine Worcester, author of four fantasy books, will talk about the shaping of a story. Come curious about the how’s and why’s of story elements. What are they? Why do authors use them? How long do they tend to be? This short discussion will contain advice and examples for any fiction enthusiast, whether writer or reader or both.
