From Idea to Book Deal & Book Signing

This program is part of Penn State Schuylkill's LionLaunch Let's Do Lunch with the Experts series. Let's Do Lunch with the Experts is a new initiative designed to help busy professionals advance their entrepreneurial skills.

Local author and entrepreneur Heather Christie shares her path to publication for her debut novel "What the Valley Knows." Christie grew up in rural Pennsylvania, and at age 17, she took off to New York City dreaming to become a movie star. Flash forward a few decades, a couple academic degrees, a bunch of cats, two kids and one husband later, she’s back in Pennsylvania as a published author.

Christie will:

  • share her story of the trials and challenges it took her on the journey to get published;
  • offer tips to budding writers; and
  • offer resources she wished she would have had along the way.

A book signing and sale will follow (books are $15 each; cash, check and credit cards accepted).
