From Saturday Writers Website:

DAN DILLON: "Picking up the Pieces: How to Turn a Failed Project into a Successful Book."

In "Picking up the Pieces," Dan will discuss how he was able to shiftgears on a work-in-progress. Dan’s original book topic was Prom Magazine, a local monthly magazine read by St. Louis high school students from the late '40s through the early '70s. Problems forced him to withdraw from the project. He was fortunate enough to be able to salvage much of his research on the "Prom" project and turn it into the second edition of "So,Where'd You Go to High School?"

DAN DILLON has been a writer/producer at KMOV Channel 4 since 1983. He is the recipient of 14 Mid-America Chapter Emmy Awards for writing, directing and editing. Dan is a graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism. He is also a proud alum of St. Thomas Aquinas High School.

Dan lives in Olivette with his wife Kim, and daughters Kylie and Mackenzie. After the meeting, Dan will be selling and autographing his books. If you know someone who went to school in St. Louis, his book would make a great gift. The meeting starts at 11:00 am.
