Deanna R. Adams, Conference Coordinator
Laurie Kincer, William N. Skirball Writers' Center 

9:40-10:20 AM / KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Literary Agent Elizabeth Kaplan in Conversation 

Literary agent Elizabeth Kaplan will be interviewed by her client and current Cuyahoga County Public Library Writer in Residence Claire McMillan about Ms. Kaplan's job as an agent, how she approaches representing authors, how she chooses new clients, her advice for writers seeking an agent, and her thoughts on trends in the publishing industry.  There will be time for audience Q&A. 

Elizabeth Kaplan has represented numerous critically acclaimed and best-selling authors throughout her 20-year career as a literary agent, including Greg Mortenson, E. Lockhart, and Michael Ruhlman. After graduating from the University of Michigan, Elizabeth moved to New York City and began her publishing career as the assistant to Jim Silberman, the founder of Summit Books. Elizabeth worked as an editor at Summit for three years before moving on to assist another publishing legend, the literary agent Sterling Lord. Before beginning her own agency in 2002, she worked as an agent at Sterling Lord Literistic and the Ellen Levine Agency. Elizabeth's main areas of focus include literary fiction, young adult fiction, narrative nonfiction (especially issue-based books), history, biography, food writing and cookbooks and memoir.

Claire McMillan, the current Writer in Residence at the William N. Skirball Writers' Center, is the author of The Necklace, an intoxicating novel set in Cleveland that BookPage calls "absorbing." Her debut novel, Gilded Age, also set in Cleveland, transforms Edith Wharton's House of Mirth into a powerful modern story of one woman's struggle with independence and love. McMillan grew up in and around Pasadena, CA. She practiced complex corporate litigation in San Francisco until 2003 and then received an MFA in creative writing from Bennington College. She lives on a family farm near Cleveland with her husband and their two children.
