Author Feud --
The SLPA’s book design game
The cover design, page layout and even the amount of space between the lines of text, have an important purpose. They are there to make your book attractive and reader-friendly. Poor design quality may give the impression it’s not worth reading.
Join us in May for a fun evening of “Author Feud” as Peggy Nehmen and Cathy Davis, two professional book designers and members of SLPA, test the SLPA’s “brain trust” for book design best-practices. Based on the “Family Feud” quiz show format, Peggy and Cathy will test your knowledge of professional book design. The audience member who guesses the answers for each category will walk away with exclusive bragging rights for 2015!
