So, You Want to Be a Writer with Nancy Moses and Lynda Barness

September 3 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

So, You Want to Write A Book?

Everyone has a book in them…or do they? It’s a long, long way from concept to completion.

What does it take to actually write the book? How do you get it published?

Nancy Moses writes nonfiction books that are published by commercial publishers. Lynda Barness writes personal and family memoirs that are self-published. Join them to learn about their very different journeys through the world of writing and publishing.

Nancy Moses writes about cultural treasures and the provocative issues they raise. Her books include Fakes, Forgeries and Frauds (2020), Stolen Smuggled Sold: On the Hunt for Cultural Treasures (2015) and Lost in the Museum: Buried Treasures and the Stories They Tell (2008). Nancy serves as Chair of the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, the government agency responsible for Pennsylvania’s historic assets. She holds a Masters Degree from George Washington University and is a Visiting Scholar at the American University of Rome.

Lynda Barness is the author of I DO: A Wedding Planner Tells Tales (2015) and I DO: A Wedding Planner’s View (2018). She is the editor of The Man I Knew Was Once A Boy: Herbert Barness, 1938-1948(2105); and The Man I Knew: Herbert Barness in the Press, 1957-1998 (2018). Lynda has had a career as a homebuilder and real estate developer (The Barness Organization, 1985-2005) and as a wedding planner (I DO Wedding Consulting, 2005-2019). She is now enjoying retirement.
