    Name: The Evolution of Writing a Book presented by Ralph Crew
    Date: February 4, 2020
    Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM EST
    Event Description:
    Big Rapids author, photographer and ophthalmologist Ralph Crew recently achieved the end goal of his new book, Inspirational Snowflakes — publication! Join Dr. Crew as he talks about his journey of seeing his book go from concept to print, and all that goes into such an endeavor.

    There are the concrete details of length, layout, editing, financing, publishing, marketing, distribution, etc. that of course need to be attended to, but there are also the less definable aspects of creation — the changes that an author makes to the original idea, the inspirational moments that spark new ideas, the side tracks that become new directions of travel.

    Come and meet Ralph. Come and hear about the evolution of his book, Inspirational Snowflakes. Come and be inspired to follow your own muse.
