Interested in learning more about authors from your community? What is their writing process and what inspires them? Learn more at Lit Chat with Therese Tappouni, who will talk about her book, Caught Between Worlds. Tappouni will be joined with moderator Stacey Horan, a local author and podcaster. Both authors reside in Jacksonville and are passionate about living creatively and helping others through their writing.

Therese Tappouni is a native of Springfield, Illinois, she attended Hillsborough Community College, the University of Florida, and studied writing at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, USF, and Eckerd College. Her passion arises from being a mother to six and a grandmother of three.

Stacey Horan is our moderator for this Lit Chat. Prior to becoming a writer, Horan was a corporate lawyer and used writing as a creative outlet. Eventually, she became a full-time writer of young adult books. After experiencing book festivals and author discussions, she was inspired to start her podcast, The Bookshop at the End of the Internet.
