Local novelist Gerry Mandel, author of Shadow and Substance: My Time With Charlie Chaplin speaks about how his hit first novel came to be, at Maryville University Thursday night, 7-8 p.m.—in Town and Country.
Mandel appears as part of the St. Louis Writers Guild Lecture Series.
"Learn about his passion for Chaplin, as well as how he wrote and marketed this breakout hit," according to the Guild.
Mandel didn't just write a novel about Charlie Chaplin, his first novel found success by taking the reader on a journey with the legendary film star.
Gerry spent years researching and penning this unique vision, then had it published by Hue Vista Publishing, and has marketed it through venues such as Amazon and StL Books.
The event is free, at the Buder Family Student Commons at Maryville University. Plenty of parking, since classes have ended for Spring semester.
