On July 30th, over 75 WAHHI members and selected guests participated in the first of six Author Series webinars with best selling author, Kristin Harmel. On the webinar, Kristin announced that her most recent book, The Book of Lost Names, just made the New York Times bestselling list debuting at number 14! Over the course of a 45 minute webinar, Kristin detailed the inspiration of the book, her research background, the creative process she used, and some of the challenges of bringing a new literary work to market. Members were able to view and ask Kristin questions using the chat pod while enjoying happy hour in their home. Due to the public health situation, WAHHI is using Zoom webinars to connect it’s members with great authors, new books and engaging programs. Future Author Series webinars, and a newly launched Chef Series which also has in-person and Zoom participation options, are benefits for members and scheduled through the end of the year.
