Des Moines Alliance of AWC Features Author, Mary Kay Shanley Rhodes on Mar. 28

Being an Author:  Why Would Anyone Do Such a Thing?
Presented by Mary Kay Shanley Rhodes

Mary Kay Shanley will share stories on how she got started in her current career as an author and what it's like to write books. She is the author of nine books, including the best-seller She Taught Me to Eat Artichokes.  Her books range from the practical (Survival Secrets of College Students to be released by Barron's this spring) to historical (Our State Fair: Iowa's Blue Ribbon Story) to sentimental (when I think about My Father: Sons and Daughters Remember and The Memory Box: Gathering Keepsakes of the Heart).  Mary Kay began her career as a reporter at The Des Moines Register and is a former member of AWC (when it was known as Women in Communications).
