Event Description

Best-selling author Terri Farley appears at Writers Forum to demonstrate how writers can use "out-takes" from their fiction to write nonfiction kids want to read. Motivated writers will leave this workshop 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. Her most recent is Wild at Heart: Mustangs and the Young People Fighting to Save Them, non-fiction published by Houghton-Mifflin-Harcourt. A Junior Library Guild selection, it is the winner of the Sterling North Heritage award for Excellence in Children's Literature and has been honored by Western Writers of America, National Science Teachers Association and American Association for the Advancement of Science. Her Phantom Stallion (HarperCollins) series for young readers and Seven Tears into the Sea (Simon and Schuster) have sold over two million copies in 27 countries. Farley has a Master’s degree in journalism from the University of Nevada, Reno.
