What is life as a writer really like? Come armed with coffee and your questions to this workshop, designed to give a peek into what it means to have a career as a writer. During this casual chat, she'll share lessons she's learned and surprises she encountered as author of more than a dozen books for young readers.

About the Author

Beth Vrabel won a story contest in fourth grade and promptly decided writing was what she was going to do with her life. (To tell you the truth, she got fourth place.) Twenty-five years later, she had her first book signing at that same library. Beth is author of Cybils'-nominated Caleb and Kit, ILA award-winning A Blind Guide to Stinkville, the Pack of Dorks and The Newspaper Club series. To Tell You the Truth releases in June 2021. When she’s not visiting schools to talk about storytelling, Beth’s in New England with her family, two over-Instagrammed dogs and six chickens.
