WIFYR Monthly Book Club

WIFYR Book Club is a FREE event held over Zoom hosted by Aubrey Allie. We have monthly meetings with an author presenter, including time for Q&A. We discuss everything from picture books through young adult. 

WIFYR book club will have a lineup of professional authors January-May (as well as invites to other special events), and then we break for conference in June. If you're not able to read the book in time, please still come and hear from our authors and ask any questions about writing, publishing, etc.
