Lake Tahoe has it’s own awesome writing event right on the shore of Lake Tahoe this coming weekend, October 21-22nd. Lake Tahoe Word Wave is a shouldn’t be missed event for anyone interested in writing and reading. In addition to enjoying interesting and informative presentations, you get to hang out at the spectacular setting which is Valhalla: A classic old Tahoe retreat on the quiet, lovely grounds which once housed the Baldwin Hotel. It is located between Camp Richardson and Taylor Creek.

The festivities begin on the evening of Friday October 21st with a Tall Timber Ball at Valhalla’s Grand Hall.

On Saturday, October 22nd there is a full schedule of events including:

Galadrielle Allman, who penned the memoir, “Please be with me: A song for my father Duane Allman,” Chosen by Amazon as a Best Book for 2014. Her story, “Only Women Bleed,” is included in the forthcoming anthology Crime + Music. Galadrielle is presently working on a novel about teenage love and punk rock music.

Craft and Courage (And the twelve years it took for my first book deal): Melissa Cistaro discusses what sustained her through the long journey of writing her memoir “Pieces of my mother.” She works as a writing mentor and event coordinator at Book Passage, the esteemed independent bookstore in Northern California, where she has introduced hundreds of authors.

Writing the Healing Story: How do we put together the pieces of our past and find the courage to craft our narrative truths?
