CAMP 2018: Find your next read at Books & Browse

By Lindsey Anderson

Looking for a book to read? You just might find your new favorite at the Conference & Mentoring Project in Welches, Oregon, next month.

Eight authors will share three-minute excerpts of their latest work during the first-ever Journalism & Women Symposium Books & Browse lightning readings. Then, if you like what you hear, head to the Books & Browse reception that will follow where you can chat with the authors, purchase their books and get them autographed.

And lucky for those coming to Conference and Mentoring Project (CAMP) 2018, many of the town’s offerings are located right in or just steps from the Mount Hood Oregon Resort.
