Alderson believes that while the beginning of a book must captivate readers, it is the ending that creates fans. The session is open to all who reserve a place and pay the fee by April 15.

To reserve, email [email protected] trivalleywriters.org. Pay at www.trivalleywriters.org. Cost is $5 for CWC members; $7 for nonmembers; $3 for students ages 14-22.
