Anna Schaeffer, Honors Program alumna and former CURS Summer Scholar, will join us to talk about turning her Honors thesis into her first published novel on Tuesday, Oct. 6 from noon to 1 p.m. in the Quad Wall Building on the Summerville campus.
Schaeffer holds a degree in English from GRU and was a finalist in the WestBow Press New Look Writing Contest.
Her first novel, titled “All of This,” follows the story of Sadie Franklin, a young woman making the (rather difficult) transition from living in Seattle to living in rural Georgia. Schaeffer describes Franklin as being “all about independence,” a trait that makes her forced adjustment to life in fictional Pecan Creek, Georgia, all the more troubling.
Copies will also be available for purchase at the event.
Attendees are also invited to the “All of This” book release party on Saturday, Oct. 10 from 1-3 p.m. at the Book Tavern. The release party will feature a reading and signing, along with giveaways and a Q&A with the author herself.
