Author and publishing consultant Renea Winchester will be at the public library in Sylva at 7 p.m. on March 27 for a discussion about gardening, friendship and building relationships in the publishing business.
Winchester’s first book In the Garden with Billy: Lessons about Life, Love and Tomatoes deals with both gardening and friendship. Winchester will read excerpts from the book and then discuss how she published and sold her book during uncertain economic times.
Winchester is a native of Western North Carolina who has won multiple awards, including the Wilma Dykeman essay award. She is currently working on another book In the Kitchen with Billy and recently formed Make Your Mark Publishing, a company that represents emerging southern authors.
