This year’s theme is: Your Writing Stimulus Package.
Our keynote speaker is author and Wall Street Journal columnist, Jeffrey Zaslow.
In 2009, Zaslow was the author or co-author of three New York Times bestsellers: The Last Lecture (with Randy Pausch), now in 46 languages; Highest Duty (with Captain “Sully” Sullenberger); and The Girls from Ames. Zaslow will be donating his speakers’ fee to Pancreatic Cancer research.
The opening session speaker will be Larry Kane, the prominent journalist, commentator, news anchor and author of three books, Ticket to Ride, Philadelphia, and most recently, Lennon Revealed, a New York Times and Los Angeles Times Bestseller.
