WNBA/LA Centennial Celebration at Skylight Books

We are now in the middle of our 100th year, so it seems fitting that we would hold an event at Skylight Books, which has a tree growing in the middle of the store!

As part of our nation-wide celebration, Bookwomen Speak: WNBA Centennial Visionaries Series, Skylight Books hosted our 2-author panel of Natashia Deon (Grace) and Jade Chang (The Wangs vs the World). Lisa Mecham moderated the wide-ranging discussion about story and parentage and writing inspirations.
