What are Pearlsong Conversations?

In January 2009 Pearlsong Press started hosting (mostly) monthly free teleconference calls in which publisher Peggy Elam, Ph.D. chats with Pearlsong authors (and possibly you!). If time and technology permit, participants/callers can join in the conversation. Each teleconference is recorded and the recording made available for listening online or downloadng at the Pearlsong Press website. Click here to go to the main Pearlsong Conversations webpage—and join us in the next call!
