Book Academy provides an opportunity to network with published authors and learn about the myriad of relevant topics ranging from business-related to writer-specific inquiries. This year's keynote speaker is author Heidi Schulz. In 2012, Heidi embarked on a new career as a professional author, finishing what would become her first published book - 'Hook`s Revenge.' No one was more surprised than she to see it sell to Disney-Hyperion after an aggressive, five-house publisher auction. Hook`s Revenge has been praised for its balance of laugh-out-loud humor and heartfelt emotion. The book is a New York Times bestseller, a Bank Street Best book, and among the prestigious New York Public Library`s Top 100 Titles for Children in 2014. She will be sharing her knowledge and expertise gained through first-hand experience to UVU`s Book Academy participants. You can get 20% off your ticket with code: Fox13. Go here for more information.
