Public is invited! THURS., NOV. 10, 6:30 to 8 pm
Event: The Bold Writers Read More Short Stories

On Thursday, November 10, 2016, five writers -- who call themselves The Bold Writers (only because they gather monthly at Bold Cafe in West Reading) -- will read original creative nonfiction and fiction from 6:30-7:30 pm at Klein Lecture Hall, Albright College Center for the Arts.

From 7:30 to 8 pm, the audience is invited to ask questions of the authors, about turning real life into creative nonfiction, getting published, finding inspiration, and more. Free and open to the public. Featured are nationally renowned children's book author Cathryn Clinton, as well as L.D. Zane, a Vietnam veteran whose searing story "Not Okay" stems from a pivotal war experience. Zane has had 14 short stories published in the last two years. Clinton's books include The Calling, The Eyes of Van Gogh, and Simeon's Fire.

Event is free; open to Albright College community and the larger Reading community. Sponsored by the English Department of Albright College.



A Word from L.T., our fearless leader

Dear Pagoda Writers,

Our November 5th workshop will be a fascinating one with some truly talented individuals coming to share their stories and observations with us. We will be honoring all Veterans and their families on this day and I hope you will all invite anyone who has served or is serving our country and their family members. There will be an opportunity to share your own story even if you are not a veteran. Everyone is welcome to prepare a brief (one to two minutes) to share what they are working on...this brings our group together in many ways. Knowing your names and faces opens up opportunities to talk and get to know each other.

Please view our website to learn more about our speakers for this day and our December workshop.

"Without appearing to work as hard, the highly creative person appears to learn as much as, if not more than, the one with a high IQ. My guess is that these highly creative people are learning and thinking when they appear to be playing around." - Emma Birkmaier

I agree with Emma. Let's keep playing!

I hope to see you all there on November 5th. Since we are hosting all Veterans and their families please consider bringing something to share for refreshments if you are able.

Thank you all for your ongoing support of our mission to inspire and encourage writing in our beautiful Berks County!
