Carolyn Howard-Johnson Continues Support for Literacy

Carolyn Howard-Johnson will share her knowledge on How to Get Published for the 2nd year in a row at the “Duarte One Town, One Book Festival” on Saturday, October 7 at 10:30 am. The award-winning author was chosen by the Friends of the Duarte Library to speak about her experiences with publishing both traditionally and nontraditionally.

The show is also sponsored by Mystic Sisters, an independent book store in Monrovia that serves the area’s public libraries and high schools by sponsoring book fairs. A portion of the proceeds of books at these events supports literacy oriented nonprofits.

Howard-Johnson is the author of USA Book News’ Best Professional Book and the Book Publicists of Southern California’s Irwin Award winner The Frugal Book Promoter: How to Do What Your Publisher Won’t. Her The Frugal Editor: Put Your Best Book Forward to Avoid Humiliation and Ensure Success will be released this fall.

The author’s first novel, This is the Place, has won eight awards. Her book of creative nonfiction, Harkening, has won three. She is an extension division instructor for UCLA’s Writers’ Program and speaks at writers’ conferences nationwide.

Howard-Johnson’s first chapbook of poetry Tracings, was just honored with a silver medal for excellence by the Military Writers’ Society of America.

The festival is held at Westminster Gardens, 1301 Buena Vista Street Duarte , CA 91010.
