6.18.13 Panel Discussion | Women Authors
Starting this year, we will have our Middleburg Women luncheons on a quarterly basis only in the third month of each quarter (March, June, September, & December). We will explore topics of special interest to business women more in depth by having a panel of experts in their field discuss the latest trends and respond to your questions.
Here is the timing for our next luncheon event:
10:30 am - 11:15 am Networking
11:15 am - 12:15 pm Panel
12:15 pm - 1:30 pm Lunch & door prizes
We are excited to have an accomplished panel of women authors.
The panelists include:
Ellen Crosby is the author of six books in the Virginia wine country mystery series, as well as Moscow Nights, a standalone mystery based loosely on her time as Moscow correspondent for ABC Radio News in the late 1980s. Before writing fiction, she also worked as a freelance reporter for The Washington Post and as an economist at the US Senate. Her next book, MULTIPLE EXPOSURE, will be released on August 6, 2013 by Scribner. The first in a new mystery series featuring photojournalist Sophie Medina, the story draws on her insider knowledge of Washington politics, her journalism background, and her stint as a Moscow reporter. After living overseas for many years--England, Switzerland, France, Italy, Spain, and the former Soviet Union--Crosby, who has an undergraduate degree in political science and a masters in international affairs, now resides in the D.C. suburbs of northern Virginia.
