Politics & Prose Free Live Event: Gilbert Ford in conversation with Mary Quattlebaum!

My friend, Gilbert Ford, is continuing his virtual book launch, this time in conversation with Mary Quattlebaum at Politics and Prose in Washington, DC. I know you have nothing better to do, because, well – COVID. So come out and support your indie authors! Here are the details:

Politics and Prose bookstore, in Washington, DC, is hosting free live virtual author events. On August 13, Thursday, at 7 p.m., award winning author/illustrator Gilbert Ford will be in conversation about his intriguing new middle-grade novel, with Mary Quattlebaum, children’s author and Washington Post/Kids Post reviewer. The Mysterious Messenger features a talking parrot, scheming psychic, Beat poets, and a lonely, endearing protagonist.

The event includes a short clip of Gilbert’s process and a live drawing demonstration as well as Q&A from the audience.

  1. It sounds like it will be an interesting conversation. Thanks for sharing.

    • I used to love going to our local, in-person book launches. I definitely miss them! But the advantage to the virtual book launches is that anyone can attend, regardless of location. This one was three states away, but it didn’t matter. Silver linings!!
