With their local author night, BookPeople exposes Austin readers to writers of fiction and non-fiction who can be found in their own neighborhood. Tonight they will feature two more authors from two very different genres.
First, Patti DeNucci is an expert in making connections that further your career. Her book, Intentional Networker: Attracting Powerful Relationships, Referrals and Results in Business, is all about networking with efficiency.
Instead of randomly reaching out to anyone who will take your business card, DeNucci discusses how to find those people you most want to connect with in order to attract more ideal clients and opportunities. Navigating the world of networking, which has been made even more complex with the advent of social networking sites, is no easy task, but DeNucci has 25 years of experience to offer guidance and insight.
Next up is Caron Cro. She spent thirty years working in education as a teacher, consoler, principal, and mentor for other principals. Retired and faced with an empty nest, she has now embarked on another journey as a science fiction author.
Her novel, Tierra del Fuego: Colony Ship, Parting Shots is set in the not-too-distant future of 2088, where environmental systems officer Trevathan Ivins anxiously awaits a 100-year journey through the stars. She’ll be one of two thousand passengers on the titular colony ship, but every one of those passengers and crew members is under threat from a group of radicals who will do whatever it takes to make sure their mission goes unaccomplished.
From networking with colleagues to navigating the stars, explore the work of these two Austin authors tonight starting at 7 pm.
