'American Idol' for books (only kinder and gentler)
Pitchapalooza is coming to The Northshire Bookstore in Manchester, VT, on Friday, April 7, at 6:30 pm. Twenty writers who have purchased tickets ($20 each) to the event will be chosen at random to give a one-minute book pitch. According to the event description, "Dozens of writers have gone from talented amateurs to professionally published authors as a result of participating in Pitchapalooza, including Genn Albin, who got a 3-book mid-6 figure deal with Farrar Straus & Giroux!"
Get polishing that pitch! For more information and to buy a ticket, see the bookstore's website.
