Audrey Weitkamp brought her trove of travel memory books and her useful tips for self-publishing to a Montlake Library audience Monday evening, Sept 28. A successful free-lance author and long-time Montlake resident, Audrey talked about how she turned her writing knowledge toward authoring accounts of travels to all parts of the globe with husband, Bill Weitkamp. Her audience appreciated seeing examples of her travel books, from the earliest using glued-in photos by Bill and simple Word-based documents, to the most recent taking advantage of on-line publishing programs (and Bill’s continuing photographic skills). Audrey offered her listeners encouragement to give memory book creation a try, whether for travel accounts or important special occasions, or family histories. Let’s see how many of them follow her example and show off their products to family and friends in the coming years. Or maybe they’ll share them here on the Flyer–beginning with Audrey.
Montlakers were welcomed to the evening program by Yvonne Nguyen Werner, Montlake Community Club Board Member, and Kathyrn Jennings, Montlake Librarian, representing the two sponsoring organizations. This engaging program concluded the summer 2015 Montlake Unabridged writer series, and was photographed by Jonathan Phillips. (See selected photos in the slideshow below.)
