Authors Anne Perry and Victoria Zackheim will share their experiences as writers at a special lecture on Wednesday, Nov. 13. The event, which will be held in the Cañada College Main Theater, is free and open to the public.

Perry is a New York Times and international bestselling author noted for her memorable characters, historical accuracy, and exploration of social and ethical issues. Two of her most popular series feature Thomas and Charlotte Pitt and William and Hester Monk. Her latest novel, Blind Justice, was on the New York Times and USA Today bestselling list for fiction.

Zackheim wrote The Bone Weaver and is the editor of six anthologies, the most recent being FAITH: Believers, Agnostics, and Atheists Confront the Big Question. Zackheim created the Women's Voices project and is a 2010 San Francisco Library Laureate. Her screenplay, Maidstone, a feature film, is in development with Identity Films.

"This is a wonderful opportunity for our community to hear about the writing process from two award-winning authors," said Anniqua Rana, coordinator for Cañada's Center for Innovation and Excellence in Teaching and Learning, which is sponsoring the event.

Former Cañada student and Belmont resident, Rose Whitmore, recently received the prestigious William Peden Prize, which recognizes the best piece of fiction published in the Missouri Review during the previous volume year.

Another former Cañada student, Gerardo Pacheco, was named the 2012 Joseph Henry Jackson Award winner, a literary award offered annually to promising young California writers.
