Let’s Talk About… Writers and Libraries



Angela Savage and Giselle Au-Nhien Nguyen




Writers and libraries are a natural fit, but how do writers build relationships with libraries?
A portrait of Angela Savage and Giselle Au-Nhien Nguyen.


Angela Savage and Giselle Au-Nhien Nguyen have, as writers working in libraries, been on both sides of the process. In this session, learn more about ways that libraries support writers and the best ways to approach and collaborate with librarians and library programmers.

This seminar will take place online and will be recorded, with the recording sent to registered participants afterward. Detailed instructions for participation will be provided in the week preceding the event.
