Ever wonder why some characters stay in your head for weeks — sometimes years — after you finish reading a book? Or why with some books, not only can you see what’s happening, you can also seem to hear, smell, feel and taste it?
You too can create memorable, resonant characters and vivid settings — find out how at D.E. Johnson’s character & setting workshop. Johnson, a Michigan Notable Book honoree, will share examples that are particularly strong in these areas, and you will learn to apply the lessons to your own writing (as well as get the chance to put those lessons to the test). Come ready to write!
Johnson will be at the Gaines Township branch at 6:30 PM on Thursday, March 29, for the workshop, and also to sign and sell his books.
The Kalamazoo-area author’s literary debut, a historical mystery entitled The Detroit Electric Scheme, was published by St. Martin’s Minotaur in 2010. The sequel, Motor City Shakedown, was published by Minotaur in September 2011. He’s currently working on the second sequel to The Detroit Electric Scheme.
Johnson’s appearance is part of KDL’s Celebrate the Mitten author series, which includes more than a dozen published authors from around the state appearing at various branches through May, and an author showcase from 1:00 to 4:00 PM on Saturday, April 21 at the Kentwood branch.
