Readers Series: New Book News

IMG_0929New books are a critical element in the literary landscape, and a great personal accomplishment.  What a let-down to have a book emerge to a pandemic lock-down instead of a live celebration.

Let’s fix that! Lit Youngstown is hosting an online Sunday readers series for authors of new titles.

The submission portal is here, for those whose books came out anytime in 2020. We look forward to celebrating and promoting these publications and their authors.
