The Friends of the Summerland Library are sponsoring a seminar for authors on publishing and marketing their manuscripts in the digital age.

The discussion will explore the many choices that confront the unpublished writer and how to go about evaluating them.

Some of the questions that will be discussed include: How do I get published? Do I need an agent? Print, digital, or both? How do I choose between all the self-publishing options?

This seminar is at the Summerland Library next Tuesday, Oct. 22 from 4 to 6 p.m.

Seating is limited so pre-register at the library.

Five panelists, including four from our local community with experience in both traditional and new forms of publishing, will join moderator Peter Hay.

Don’t forget that the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra performs this Saturday, Oct. 19 in Penticton at 7:30 p.m. at the Cleland Theatre.

And Valdy and Gary Fjellgaard will be at Centre Stage on Oct. 27.

Unfortunately Summerland Singers and Players have had to cancel their production of The War of the Worlds which had been scheduled for Oct. 30.
