Meet the Author of “Copy Boy” – Shelley Blanton-Stroud!

August 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

“Copy Boy” – Its history. But its right now, too. Janes a very brave boy. And a very difficult girl. Shell become a remarkable woman, an icon of her century, but thats a long way off. Not my fault, she thinks, dropping a bloody crowbar in the irrigation ditch after Daddy. She steals Mommas Ford and escapes to Depression-era San Francisco, where she fakes her way into work as a newspaper copy boy. She’s got grit!
Join us to meet the award winning author of “Copy Boy”- Shelley Blanton-Stroud (https://shelleyblantonstroud.com/). She grew up in Californias Central Valley, the daughter of Dust Bowl immigrants who made good on their ambition to get out of the field. She teaches college writing in Northern California and consults with writers in the energy industry. She co-directs Stories on Stage Sacramento, where actors perform the stories of established and emerging authors. You can purchase “Copy Boy” anywhere you normally get your books. But…..you don’t need to read the book to attend! We promise there won’t be any spoilers.

This event is a fundraiser for Debra Gardner, candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates, District 27. Speaking of grit, she is running against a Republican incumbent who’s been in office since 2010. Debra will join us during this event! We intend to flip this seat blue!
