  • “If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.” – Stephen King But how do we find good books? And how do we learn from them? Let’s start by listening to and sharing with other writers in our community at “Books Talk,” a new monthly Zoom meeting. Bring a recently published (within the last 3 years) book or books that you enjoyed reading. Be prepared to read a passage that demonstrates really good writing and tell us a bit about your book(s). Or just listen until you feel comfortable to share. You can look at the ALA awards books if you’re wondering what to read. Time: Second Tuesdays, 6:45 PM Mountain Time (US and Canada) NM SCBWI is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting. Topic: Books Talk Time: Apr 12, 2022 06:30 PM Mountain Time (US and Canada) Meeting ID: 915 3549 1422 Passcode: 915045
