Next chapter meeting: Saturday, August 6th

The August meeting is packed with information! Everyone has returned from RWA Nationals in San Diego, and the chapter members who were lucky enough to attend will share a recap of the event.

Texas Association of AuthorsFollowing the recap, B. Alan Bourgeois, founder of Texas Authors, Inc., also known as the Texas Association of Authors, will be visiting to tell us about his organization. The Texas Association of Authors is a not for profit organization that is dedicated to marketing, promoting and selling Texas Authors and their books. You can learn more about them on their website.

Laine and Mary LindsayLast but certainly not least, we’ve got criminal lawyer Laine Lindsey who will present an information session on “Courtroom and Police Protocol, Fact and Fiction”

With 24 years of criminal law experience, Laine Lindsey has seen crazy things and read even crazier things.  In this session, he will describe the basics of the Harris County criminal system from arrest to sentencing, and point out some errors commonly seen in fiction. 
The session will end with a Q&A, so bring questions you might have regarding not only your projects, but real life as well. 
More about Laine:
Laine Lindsey  graduated cum laude from the University of Houston Law Center in 1992 and started his legal career at the Harris County District Attorney’s Office – where he prosecuted cases in the Justice of the Peace, Juvenile, County, and District courts.
