We don't have any Breezers in the neighborhood for February, but we do have an SCBWI Southern Breeze sponsored event AND an amazing SCBWI member who'll be visiting in Alabama for a super event:

February 9th:

Who: Soniah Kamal on "Getting Published"

When: 10:30 AM

Where: NE/Spruill Oaks Library
             9560 Spruill Road
             Johns Creek, GA

What: With starred reviews in Library Journal and Publishers Weekly for her most recently published book (Unmarriageable: Pride and Prejudice in Pakistan, Penguin Random House USA) and an Amazon Rising Star Award for her first book (An Isolated Incident), Soniah Kamal is definitely making an impressive mark as an award-winning essayist and fiction writer. Come hear her story of the past six years when she was writing and working toward completion of a Masters in Fine Art from Georgia State University — all toward her goal of “Getting Published.” Plenty of time for questions and answers, too! Reservations required: Call 770-360-8820 or
