Have you ever been so provoked by a book - amused, entranced, mystified or even disturbed - that you would love to get inside the author's head? Sit across a table from Jane Austen, say, with a cup of coffee and just put the questions plainly? Hey, Jane, was Mary Bennett in love with Mr. Collins? Are we really supposed to believe that Lizzie came from such ridiculous parents? Is it true that you never wrote a scene without a woman in the room? (No, Jane, that creamer is actually corn syrup).
Or are you a budding novelist frustrated by the writing process? Desperate, maybe, for a successful writer's input on envisioning characters, assembling a plot, and getting published in the 21st century?
Well, we can't actually bring Jane Austen to a Starbucks near you, but we are bringing Susanna Kearsley to 95th Street Library! Whether you're a reader, a writer, or both, this event promises to be a great time.
