AUSTIN, Texas—Texas Association of Authors offers “Goodbye Gutenberg… Hello Steve,” a seminar on reading and “containers” at its upcoming Texas Spring Festival 2013. The discussion will be led by Mindy Reed, Editor-in-Chief of The Authors Assistant, which she founded over seventeen years ago..
The seminar will include the history of print media, and the evolution of reading options for readers, which include iPads, Kindles, Nooks and smartphones. “It’s never been a better time to be an author,” Reed contends. “Authors have so many ways to connect with readers.”
“Mindy is an amazing woman who is a professional librarian as well as a professional reader,” said B. Alan Bourgeois, founder of The Texas Association of Authors, “She understands writing from both the authors’ and the readers’ point of view.”
Reed wants to inform writers and readers through the sharing of information, and encourages questions and discussion during the session. “Goodbye Gutenberg… Hello Steve” has
limited seating. Please reserve in advance at http://www.txauthors.com. Guests may also purchase breakfast in the am for $15.00 at the event and proceeds will go to help future authors find their way with the help of the Texas Association of Authors.
The Texas Association of Authors is also promoting a fundraiser to help raise money for the event by offering one lucky winner a set of books from last year’s Spring Book Festival.
