Author to speak in Cape on Oct. 3
Author Lance Marcum will hold a writing workshop on Tuesday from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Cape Girardeau Central Middle School Library.
The workshop is free and open to the public. Earlier in the day, Marcum will speak to students from Central Middle, Trinity Lutheran and St. Vincent schools.
He also will conduct in-school workshops at Central Middle School on Wednesday and Thursday.
Marcum, a sixth-grade teacher for the past 16 years in Sacramento, Calif., recently authored a book, "The Cottonmouth Club."
In the book, the main character, Mitch, is forced to spend his summer vacation with relatives in Louisiana. He finds himself a candidate for the Cottonmouth Club when he and a group of boys become involved in secretive outdoor activities.
At the workshop, Marcum will talk about his experiences in getting the book published and give tips on the writing process.
Copies of his book will be available for purchase.
