PUNTA GORDA — Florida Gulf Coast University Herald Court in Punta Gorda is celebrating the authors that have completed their books while attending one of the school’s programs.
The school will host “Caravan of Authors,” from Dec. 2 through Dec. 5, a series of talks that is free and open to the public, with 13 of the school’s writing course alumni. Of the 13 authors, they’ve had 19 books published.
The authors will discuss their work, offer tips and hold question-and-answer sessions.
“This is our chance to show off. All of the authors either took or taught classes here; they’re like members of the family,” said Nancy Staub, program coordinator at FGCU Herald Court.
“I think we all have stories in us, but these folks put in the dedication and hard work,” she added.
