Organizers of the National Writers Series have announced some of the authors coming to Traverse City this year.
Kicking-off the 2011 series, two writers from the television series "Mad Men" will share stories about writing for the small screen.
The series continues with Sarah Brokaw, Paula McLain, Roy Blount, Jr., and an evening highlighting Michigan authors including Michael Delp and Bonnie Jo Campbell.
Later this fall, satirist David Sedaris will come to town, and there will be a thrillers and crime-writers event.
Tickets go on sale to Friends of the Writers Series on January 17, and to the general public a week later.
