Join us for all or part of the evening!

Dara Beevas and Roseanne Cheng, founder and marketing director of Wise Ink Creative Publishing, will talk about book creation and marketing. They will lead a roundtable discussion with several Wise Ink authors (below), who will each talk about their unique experiences. 

5-6 pm - Meet the authors
Each of the authors will be on hand to talk with attendees, answer questions, and sell their books. 

6-9 pm - Social time
You're welcome to stick around and socialize at the club, where we'll have snacks, cocktails, beer, wine and zero-proof drinks. 

This is a Fueled Collective Social Club event, limited to members, their guests and invitees.
