Lisa Alber joins us Wednesday, October 19, to talk about “Sense of Place – It’s Not Just Landscape”

Setting encompasses so much more than landscape, weather, and the rooms characters move around in. “Place” is the entire world the characters inhabit, including the cultural context. Lisa will explore how she uses place to enrich her stories.
