On November 11, 2017, best-selling author Terri Farley will be appearing at a special Writers Forum event to demonstrate how writers can use “out-takes” from their fiction to write nonfiction that kids want to read. From 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., motivated writers will leave this workshop located at the All Saints Episcopal Church Memorial Hall, 2150 Benton Drive, Redding, with the skeleton of a nonfiction book that can build credibility and broaden audiences. Farley, an advocate for the West’s wild horses, is the author of books about the contemporary and historic West.
