CHUCK'S SPEECH: NOV. 17, 2010

I am giving a speech on "How to Get Your Book Published" at 6:30 p.m. I will be giving some of my best piece of advice, then I will take questions from the crowd. Plus, you can browse the Local Author Book Fair before and after my presentation (fair starts at 5:30).

I believe the event is free.
