Central Texas College will celebrate Women’s History Month with a book signing featuring several women authors, including Debra Winegarten, on Tuesday, March 25 in the campus library from 2-4 p.m. Winegarten is the author of the young adults biography “Oveta Culp Hobby – Colonel, Cabinet Member, Philanthropist.”
A resident of Austin, TX, Winegarten also penned other books including the award-winning “There’s Jews In Texas” which earned the Poetica Publishing national chapbook contest, “Katherine Stinson: The Flying School Girl” and Mum’s The Word: A Tribute to Ruthe Winegarten.” Winegarten said, “I write lots of biographies for middle-school students, giving them inspirational role models in life. There is way too much gloom and evil being focused on in the world. I want my life to be a beacon for bringing forth beauty, truth, possibility and joy, so I stand in that place when I write.”
Also signing books will be several other local authors such as Leslie Green who wrote “Love, Trust and Pixie Dust.” She is the daughter of CTC Board of Trustee member Mari Meyer. Diane McCloskey in the Risk Managemwent department will sign her book “Through Jenny’s Eyes” and CTC student Sarah Erber will will sign her debut book “Catching Temptation.”
The book signing is free and open to the public. All of the authors will also partake in a question-and-answer session about the writing process, offer publishing tips and share some of their marketing success stories and straetgies.
