Challenges and Choices: Two Madison Authors Discuss Their Novels

Event date: 
Thursday, July 18, 2013 - 6:30pm

A Room of One's Own is delighted to welcome two debut Madison authors (and participants in the writer's group that meets in our store), Miki Knezevic and Dan Maguire, for a reading and Q & A from their recently published novels.

Miki Knezevic is a lifelong Wisconsin resident—Milwaukee and Madison—and writer in different genres. Besides her debut novel—Behind God's Back—Knezevic writes articles, short stories and is the co-author of English as a Second Language textbooks(ESL) for Random House, then McGraw-Hill, for 25+ years. She thanks Room of One's Own (formerly Canterbury and Avol's) for allowing the Saturday Morning Irregulars (SAMIs) writers' group space to meet for over 18 years. "It's where I learned to write fiction," she says, "and I'm eternally grateful for the knowledge, fun and camaraderie offered by the Saturday morning sessions."

Dan Maguire spent his childhood in Western New York and has lived in Wisconsin for the past eighteen years. His recently published debut novel, One Last Improvisation, is a crime thriller that takes place right here in Madison. Police officer Ryan O'Reilly must track the source of a heroin network in the present while chasing down secrets from his past. Exploring the themes of mistakes, regret, and second chances, One Last Improvisation appeals to readers of multiple genres and will leave the reader hooked through to the end.
