HIGH SIERRA WRITERS
Next HSW Meeting
October 9 at 10 am at Scheels!
Our October meeting will be at Scheels. Masks are required and the seating should give us adequate space to spread out socially. We will still have an online meeting, using Google Meet. We will post the link later this week.
Special Guest: Award-winning author Tony Broadbent
Don’t miss this one.
Our guest October 9 will be award-winning British author, Tony Broadbent. Tony’s career includes writing for TV, radio, and movies. His post-WW2 series of mystery novels about a master thief in London (the Smoke series) has won awards for historical novels.
His fictionalized Beatles mystery, One After 9:09, is a fascinating mix of Beatles fact and fiction. His most recent book is non-fiction: The Beatles in Liverpool, Hamburg, and London. With Tony’s experience in early British rock and roll as a resident of London, he provides a fascinating look at the Fab Four before they became the Fab Four.
Straddling fiction and non-fiction, Tony has a unique perspective on storytelling in both worlds.
We’ll talk craft, the importance of setting, and how to hold a reader’s interest. And if we’re lucky, Tony, as the great raconteur that he is, might tell us a couple backstage stories about the birth of rock and roll in England.
A splendid time is guaranteed for all.
