Author Brenda Ferber demystifies the book revision process in a unique writing program, "Revising with Power and Purpose," at the Vernon Area Library, 300 Olde Half Day Road, Lincolnshire, from 1 to 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1. Writers will learn how to get their work ready for agents and publishing houses, and Ferber will share simple ways to view writing objectively. She will also provide practical tips to make a story stronger, more compelling, more authentic, and polished. The Deerfield resident is an award winning author of books for kids and tweens, including "Julia's Kitchen," "Jemma Hartman, Camper Extraordinaire," and "The Yuckiest, Stinkiest, Best Valentine Ever."
