The event is free and open to the public on a first-come-first-served basis. Deborah Grosvenor heads the Grosvenor Literary Agency and has more than 25 years’ experience in the book publishing business as an agent and editor. Ms. Grosvenor will speak about the publishing industry and how to engage with it. She looks forward to answering questions from attendees. An interview with her can be found here in Writer's Digest.
During her career, Grosvenor edited or represented several hundred nonfiction books. She is interested in narrative nonfiction in the categories of history, biography, politics, current and foreign affairs, memoir, food, health, science, the environment and travel.
