Austin will be in conversation with Heather Havriklesky for this event.
The world is crazy. Creative work is hard. And nothing is getting any easier!
In his previous books-- Steal Like an Artist and Show Your Work!, New York Times bestsellers with over a million copies in print combined--Austin Kleon gave readers the key to unlock their creativity and then showed them how to share it. Now he completes his trilogy with his most inspiring work yet. Keep Going gives the reader life-changing, illustrated advice and encouragement on how to stay creative, focused, and true to yourself in the face of personal burnout or external distractions. Keep working. Keep playing. Keep searching. Keep giving. Keep living. Keep Going. It's exactly the message all of us need, at exactly the right time. (Workman Publishing)
