(HCRW) a chapter of Romance Writers of America.
Location: the new Hilton Garden located at 3912 Arrow Drive in Raleigh. A book signing, open to the public, will follow the workshop.
The workshop will be conducted by Jackson, who is the author of Gods in Alabama, Between, Georgia, The Girl Who Stopped Swimming, Backseat Saints, and A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty.
