A Conversation with Elizabeth Wetmore

Creating Conversations and Literary Women are collaborating to bring you an exciting evening with Elizabeth Wetmore to discuss her ground-breaking novel, Valentine, with radio personality Pam Atherton. In this astonishing debut novel, Wetmore explores the effect of a brutal crime committed Valentine’s Day 1976 in a small Texas town. It is a “haunting exploration of the intersection of violence and race,” yet a “surprisingly tender novel illuminating women’s strength and vulnerability.”

Creating Conversations with Literary Women

As readers, we are acutely aware of the importance of books to fill our time, minds, and souls. Over the last six years Literary Women has been fortunate to have the support of Creating Conversations as our festival bookseller to bring you the books of our featured authors. As an independent bookstore, Creating Conversations offers a place to discuss and discover new books, enhance exposure to authors, and enrich our reading experience. Due to the pandemic, however, independent bookstores are in danger of losing their businesses and need our help to survive.

We hope you will support Creating Conversations. Please visit their website, create an account, order a book, explore their events, and have a virtual experience with an author.
