Tom Glenn Teaches The Craft of Writing

South Bowie Branch Library, PGCMLS

Our May Mtg is postponed to June 8th so that our members can get ready to honor their Mothers the next day. Please join us on Saturday June 8th as Tom Glenn, author of No-Accounts, (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/21487844-no-accounts) helps up our writing craft at least a notch. Tom Glenn has worked as an intelligence operative, a musician, a linguist (seven languages), a cryptologist, a government executive, a care-giver for the dying, a leadership coach, and, always, a writer. Many of his prize-winning short stories (sixteen in print) came from the better part of thirteen years he shuttled between the U.S. and Vietnam on combat support intelligence assignments before being evacuated under fire when Saigon fell. With a BA in Music, a master's in Government, and a doctorate in Public Administration and trained as a musician, actor, and public speaker, he toured the country lecturing on leadership and management, trained federal executives, and was the Dean of the Management Department at the National Cryptologic School. He is also a reviewer for The Washington Independent Review of Books where he specializes in books on Vietnam. The recent declassification of his work in Vietnam has led to a plethora of presentations, interviews, and articles. Tom is a superb speaker and an excellent practioner of the craft of writing.
