Book Publishing for Genealogists with Linda Roghaar
Brandeis University, Mandel Center for the Humanities, Room G3
A short business meeting at 7:30 p.m., followed by our speaker, Linda Roghaar (doors open at 7:00 pm)

From manuscript preparation to printing, learn the important steps to preserve your work in a professional, permanent document or book that will be read and enjoyed by generations to come. We will discuss how these steps apply to everyone and every project: writing, editing, copyediting, organizing and preparing visual elements, design and typesetting, proofreading, printing, and distribution.
