NaNoWriMo Presents NaNoLitMo! 
The new, exciting, literary reading series for Wrimos and the wide world of local writers who dare to write greatly (or you know, who dare to write anything at all, which counts). 
In January, we celebrate the launch of Rachael Herron's new book, Fast Draft Your Memoir: Write Your Life Story in 45 Hours! Rachael Herron is the bestselling author of the novels The Ones Who Matter Most (named a 2016 Editor’s Pick by Library Journal), Splinters of Light and Pack Up the Moon (all from Penguin), the Darling Bay and the Cypress Hollow series, and the memoir, A Life in Stitches (Chronicle). She received her MFA in writing from Mills College, Oakland and she teaches writing in the extension programs at both UC Berkeley and Stanford. She’s proud to be a New Zealander as well as a US citizen, though her Kiwi accent only comes out when she’s very tired. She’s honored to be a member of the NaNoWriMo Writers Board. 
Come listen to her read, then partake in a mini-writing challenge to which she'll challenge us! Then enjoy a raucous Q&A with the audience in which no holds will be barred! 
Join Shannon Monroe at Octopus Literary Salon in Oakland, as they showcase local authors of all genres in this new, bimonthly series. Each event will have a reading, a writing-related activity, and a Q&A session with the author. 
Come support your fellow authors and help us celebrate NaNoWriMo all year long.
