Through a special arrangement, Wise Women Write @ Nite presents Laura Munson in an “event before the event” at Xavier’s Piper Auditorium: a one-hour intimate conversation for writers before Laura takes the main stage.
Laura is the best-selling author of This Is Not The Story You Think It Is: A Season of Unlikely Happiness and the NY Times Modern Love column “Those Aren’t , Dear.”
The response to Laura’s column crashed the NY Times’ servers, and it was the most emailed column for weeks.
Yet Laura is more than an overnight sensation. She has been a writer in the trenches for years. In fact, she has 14 unpublished fiction manuscripts! Want to know how Laura persevered through rejection and doubt? Come join us at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 27, at the pre-event to Laura’s 7:00 Speaker Series presentation at Xavier.
To register for the writers’ pre-event:
1. Purchase your $35 ticket to the Laura Munson Speakers Series (which includes a copy of Laura’s book and a contribution to the Fresh Start Women’s Foundation).
2. Email a copy of your event registration to Diane Amento Owens at
3. Laura loves helping and encouraging writers and will not charge an additional fee to the writers’ pre-event. Since Laura is a huge proponent of reading and learning through books, your admission to the writer’s event will be one self-help book (can be gently used) for the Fresh Start Women’s Foundation.
