Local Writer Series: Deanna Newsom

Wednesday, March 12, 2014 - 7:00pm

Antioch College is thrilled to announce the second installment of our Local Writer Series! We will be welcoming writers from all over the Miami Valley to come and talk about writing and share their work. 

For our second event in this series, we'll welcome Deanna Newsom on Wednesday, March 12, at 7:00 p.m. at the Coretta Scott King Center. The event is FREE and open to the public.

After a childhood literary diet of Reader’s Digest jokes and Sweet Valley High romances, Deanna read Roald Dahl’s “The BFG” with her sons and was never the same again. Her young adult novel “The Tunnel Jumper”s follows two brothers as they travel from their grandpa’s run-down pet shop to the wilderness of Cameroon, Costa Rica, and Scotland, using a secret power of endangered species to solve the mystery of what happened to their missing parents.
