This week we present two more of the talks from our BooktopiaVT Celebration of Authors: Sara J. Henry, author of Learning to Swim, and Richard Mason, author of History of a Pleasure Seeker.
Congratulations to Sara J. Henry, whose novel Learning to Swim won two awards last week: the Mary Higgins Clark Award and the Agatha Award for Best First Novel. Sara lovingly relates the story of her childhood spent in a room full of books and a typewriter; the perfect breeding ground for a writer!
Richard Mason had such a great time in Vermont that he asked if he could join us in Oxford as well. The fact that he was such a big hit made it an easy decision for us. Oxford attendees, prepare to be charmed and entertained! During his talk Richard spoke about writing, longhand, History of a Pleasure Seeker, and the interactive app he has created for his novel.
