Interabang Books is pleased to be partnering once again with the annual Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Conference, a forum for journalists, writers, readers, students, educators and the general public to listen to, be inspired by and practice the craft at the highest possible level. Now in its 17th year, the Mayborn Conference gathers some of the most talented storytellers in the country to share their stories, life-changing experiences and expertise with aspiring writers through lectures, panels, one-on-one sessions and keynotes.  This year’s theme highlights a personally and professionally tumultuous year - “To Your Health:  Healing the Nation, Healing the News, Healing Yourself” – that especially resonates as journalists worked to cover a global health crisis and a movement for social justice and police reform.

Following in the footsteps of its first virtual iteration in 2020, the 2021 conference will be mostly online. Interabang Books in Dallas will host a featured speaker in-person on Friday, October 15, followed by the online conference all day on Saturday, October 16.   Featured speakers include Emmy-award winner Dr. Seema Yasmin, CBS White House Correspondent and author Major Garrett, and retired executive editor of The Washington Post Marty Baron.

For a full list of speakers and to register for the event, please go to https://www.themayborn.com/.

We hope to see you there!
