Sandy Lynne Holman, a Davis author and director of The Culture Co-op, will offer a “Publishing 101″ seminar from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 29.

Holman is the author of several bestselling children’s books, including “Grandpa, Is Everything Black Bad?,” “Grandma Says Our Hair Has Flair” and “We All Have a Heritage.” She will share her experiences about how to successfully publish a book with or without publishers. There also will be an opportunity to view books that are in preparation for publishing. Time will be allowed for questions and answers.

Holman’s work has received awards from Stepping Stones and Writer’s Digest, and she received the Blackboard Children’s Book of the Year Award at the nation’s largest book event, The Book Expo in New York City.

Holman received the Calvin E. Handy Leadership Award this spring from UC Davis in recognition of her leadership in diversity/equity locally and nationwide. She was honored for work as a diversity/equity trainer and as an event planner for the Davis International Festival.

The award is named in honor of Calvin E. Handy, who was chief of the UCD Police Department from 1993 until 2005. Members of the campus community created award in honor of his leadership in public safety.
