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. Many times our authors give writing presentations, so we learn a lot in this group while reading awesome books. We try to keep our meetings at around 40-45 minutes and full stop at an hour.

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, that is fine. You may still come and hear from our authors and ask any questions about writing, publishing, etc.

Thursday, February 29 at 7:30pm MT

Author: Shelly Brown & Chad Morris

Book Club Book: Virtually Me
