Riverside author to speak at local event

November 4, 2013 by  

A local writer will be speaking at an open reception at the Riverside Temple Beth El on later this week.

Novelist, poet, essayist, and Riverside resident Gayle Brandeis will discuss her past works, including the Bellwether Prize-winning novel ‘The Book of Dead Birds’ and its long-awaited sequel ‘The Book of Live Wires’, which was released last month.

‘The Book of Live Wires’ is Brandeis’ seventh published novel. New and returning readers will follow the continuing story of Brandeis’ complex and quirky characters. In addition to her novels, Brandeis, who was born in Chicago in 1968, also has an extensive catalog of poems, essays, and short stories. Her shorter works have been featured in more than 20 literary anthologies and dozens of print and online publications. Her work tends to focus on the subjects of feminism, social justice, and issues with the environment. When not writing, Brandeis also teaches courses at universities and writing conferences across the country and internationally.

A local printing company can help anyone hoping to promote themselves and their written work by assisting in the creation of dynamic marketing materials. Promoting within one’s own community can be a blast with postcards, flyers, catalogs, and even posters bringing attention to the author and their new release.

The presentation will be co-hosted by the Riverside Temple Beth El and the Inlandia Institute, and it will run from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm this Thursday, November 7. Admission to the talk is free.
