First Friday at Ellen Plumb's City Bookstore

Join Tracy Million Simmons, Meadowlark Books, for Ellen Plumb’s signature event! Tracy will be February’s Guest Host for an evening of literature and music! Bring something to read, and music and instruments to play—Open Mic is open to everyone!

Join us at 5:30 for a mini panel discussion about publishing with Meadowlark Books. Tracy will talk a bit about the seed that started Meadowlark, guidelines for submitting manuscripts, and how Meadowlark has evolved in the last six years. Cheryl Unruh and Michael D. Graves will be on hand to answer questions about their experiences as Meadowlark authors, and to kick off the Open Mic event for the evening, which starts at 6pm!
