January 11 meeting: Ask the Bookseller

Maybe we should say Ask THE Bookseller because there are few with more experience than David Unowsky. Through his ownership of the renowned Hungry Mind and Ruminator bookstores and his experiences with Magers and Quinn and Subtext, he has hosted book launches and book signings for thousands of authors from John Updike, Norman Mailer, and Hillary Clinton to local first-time authors. He’ll talk about some of his most memorable experiences and also the do’s and don’ts when working with booksellers and doing signings. He’ll also talk about the biggest mistakes new authors make, a bit on how the industry has changed for authors, publishers, and bookstores, and more. Join us on January 11 at 7pm for an informative and entertaining evening. 

Where: Midland Hills Country Club, 2001 Fulham Ave, Roseville [map]
