Below the information on our “Next Program” page, we have introduced a rolling calendar of events for the year and are now labeling the page “Next Program and Events Calendar.” Please check it out. We have posted our events for the remaining of the year and will fill in details as they are decided and become available. We hope this will help you plan your CWC involvement. Please note, also, that all members are invited to our Board meetings. These are OPEN meetings and we encourage you to join us and learn about the workings of our branch.
Our next program features Ron Shoop, representative of Random House, now Penguin Random House. Ron will share his long-time expertise as a book seller. See our “Next Program” tab for details and join us on October 12 for our lunch and speaker.
Yes, we’re back! On Sat., Sept. 14, Judith Newton will discuss Publishing Both Short and Full-Length Works.

Added benefit this month: Writer’s Table with Rick Reed: It’s about Crime, a discussion of true law enforcement procedures and facts.
Our branch is proud to announce that David George became President of the entire CWC, taking over the “gavel” from Bob Garfinkle. David has a long history of volunteering both in our branch and in the CWC at large. He has held positions as President of our branch, Treasurer of our branch (currently), and in NorCal. How lucky we are to have him as part of our Mt. Diablo branch. Congratulations, David.
Our final program will be on Sat. June 8 when Margit Liesche will explain how to weave stories out of actual events. For details, see “Next Program.”
