The NOVEMBER Main Line Writers Group meeting - Wednesday, November 20 - Phoenix Island and Intelligence: How a Previously Unpublished Novelist Landed a Two-Book Deal and a TV Series
For nearly two decades, John Dixon taught language arts at Springton Lake Middle School in Media, Pa, during which time he published thirty-some stories and began working on novels. Now, John is a full-time novelist and a consultant for ABC Studios. His YA thriller Phoenix Island (Simon & Schuster, January 21st, 2014) inspired the upcoming CBS TV series Intelligence, which premiers February 24th, starring Josh Holloway, Marg Helgenberger, and Megan Ory.
Our meeting place is Michael's Restaurant Deli in King of Prussia, just north of The King of Prussia Mall on Rt 202. The address is 130 Town Center Road in King of Prussia,[masked]-3265. The meeting officially starts at 7:00 pm but many of us come early (around 6:00 pm) to eat and socialize a bit - but you can order your meal at any time during the meeting. We use a private room and the acoustics are great. You'll have no problem hearing our speakers or each other.
Just a reminder that you can order a scrumptious meal at Michael's off their extensive menu. We don't get charged for the great room, but Michaels does have the expectation that attendees will order a meal. It is a fair expectation and the meals are very reasonably priced.
Mark your calendar for every third Wednesday of the month. Feel free to tell others and bring a friend or two.
As usual, any questions, please contact me, Gary Zenker, at[masked] or [masked]. We are all looking forward to seeing you there.
