Grubbie Debut Author Series
GrubStreet and Porter Square Books are partnering for a celebratory new reading and conversation series that goes behind the scenes with members of the GrubStreet community to launch their debut books. These are all authors whose time in GrubStreet’s classes, conferences, and/or events shaped their books in some important way.
In candid conversations with fellow authors, we’ll hear how these Grubbies went from aspiring to published, what inspired and sustained their stories, and how each book developed and changed along the way.
Books will be available for purchase from Porter Square Books.
