On Saturday, November 1, 2014, ASTAL will host its annual author luncheon in the Student Union Ballroom on the Rhode Island College campus. One of ASTAL’s signature events, the luncheon showcases several acclaimed authors with local ties. Attendees will not only hear each author speak, but dine at table with one of the featured authors. Authors will be available to sign their books, available for sale that day, following the event. Every attendee receives a free book and chances at countless others in a raffle.
This year’s luncheon also includes a special tribute to Liza Ketchum, acclaimed writer for young people who served as a faculty member at ASTAL’s Institute on Writing for Young People.
