Downtown Central Library -- LOCAL AUTHOR PANEL

Petrea Burchard, GB Pool & Bonnie Schroeder


Local writers Petrea Burchard, G.B. Pool, and Bonnie Schroeder will discuss their books, their writing process, and how their varied backgrounds led them to the writing profession.

Petrea Burchard is an actress and voice-over artist as well as a writer, and her acting experiences are reflected in both her adventure fiction Camelot and Vine and in her humorous non-fiction book Act As If: Stumbling Through Hollywood with Headshot in Hand.

G.B. Pool is a former newspaper reporter and private investigator as well as the author of the Johnny Casino and Gin Caulfield mystery series, several stand-alone mysteries, and a series of Christmas-themed books. A member of Sisters in Crime, she has also taught workshops on the craft of writing.

Bonnie Schroeder’s debut novel, Mending Dreams was published by Champlain Avenue Books, followed this year by her second novel, Write My Name on the Sky, which is based in part on her experiences in the 1960s art world in Los Angeles.

Although the authors write in different genres and took different routes to publication, all three are dedicated to the craft and have some interesting stories to share about the writing life. The trio will also read brief passages from their work and field questions from the audience. Copies of their books will be available for purchase.


PARKING: Visitors to the Downtown Central Library receive 3 hours FREE parking in the MarketPlace parking structure on Harvard Street with validation at the library service desk on the main floor.
