ABERCROMBIE READS FROM LATEST BOOK AT DIESEL
Santa Monica writer Barbara Abercrombie will read from and sign her latest book, “A Year of Writing Dangerously,” at Diesel Bookstore in Brentwood on Thursday, November 8th at 7:00.
In this collection of anecdotes, lessons, quotes, and prompts, author and teacher, Abercrombie provides a delightfully varied cornucopia of inspiration — nuts-and-bolts solutions, hand-holding commiseration, and epiphany-fueling insights from fellow writers, including Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winners and Abercrombie’s students who have gone from paralyzed to published.
She has published fourteen books: novels for adults, books for children including the prize winning picture book, CHARLIE ANDERSON, as well as CHERISHED: 21 Writers on Animals They Have Loved and Lost.
She teaches creative writing in the Writers’ Program at UCLA Extension and lives with her husband and Their rescue dog Nelson in Santa Monica and Lake Arrowhead.
A Year of Writing Dangerously: 365 Days of Inspiration and Encouragement. New World Library, has just been issued in paperback.
Diesel is located in the Brentwood Country Mart, at 26th Street and San Vicente.
