Sarah Ellis presents “Bringing Your Whole Self to the Story” at the next Writers' Roundtable.

The roundtable is 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17 at the Bainbridge Public Library.

What goes into a piece of fiction? Ellis, the author of 14 books for children, details her own process. She describes how the news, documentary films, city walking, magazine articles all find their way into her novels for young readers.

Ellis' published work includes picture books, short story collections, middle grade novels and nonfiction. Her books have been honored with the Canadian Governor General’s Award for Children’s Literature and the TD Canadian Children’s Literature Award. She also writes book reviews for The Horn Book Magazine and lectures internationally. She lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The evening includes a question-and-answer period and closes with an opportunity to network with other writers.

Roundtables are free and open to writers of all skill levels; no registration is required.

For more information, visit or call the library at 206-842-4162.

Field’s End, an affiliate of the Bainbridge Public Library, offers workshops, classes and other events focusing on the art, craft and profession of writing.
