Valerie Connors, author and Atlanta Writers Club president, to lead Writers Roundtable

Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014

Ivy Hall,

Atlanta, GA

179 Ponce de Leon Ave.

SCAD’s Ivy Hall Writers series presents a Writers Roundtable with Valerie Joan Connors. Connors is the author of two novels and the president of the Atlanta Writers Club. Her most recent novel, “In Her Keeping,” released in August 2013 by Bell Bridge Books, is a gentle look at a serious problem: the plight of tigers in captivity in the U.S. and elsewhere. Set in a tiger sanctuary in the mountains of North Carolina, “In Her Keeping” tells a story about starting over, finding a new purpose in life and seeing motherhood in a radically new perspective.

Connors’ first book, “Give Me Liberty,” a historical novel set in New York just after World War II, was self-published in 2010. Connors works as the operations manager for an architectural, engineering and interior design firm in Marietta, Georgia.

The event is free and open to all SCAD students. Advance registration is encouraged. Space is limited. Contact Georgia Lee to register.
