Author Showcase

November 7, 2018

We hope you can attend LGW's first-ever Author Showcase!


Did you know that the LGW membership is filled with accomplished authors? Within our network, members have written books on a variety of topics including leadership, examining the issues of our region, and social sciences. This November, LGW is proud to host the first-ever Author Showcase.

LGW Members will have the opportunity to provide a short overview of their book and be able to sell or sign books at a table. We encourage the LGW membership to join us for this great opportunity to connect and gain insights from our published LGW authors while enjoying wine and light refreshments.
