Meet local authors (Nora Gaskin, Michael B. Jones, Joyce Allen, Pete Rizzolo, Karon Luddy, Dicy McCullough ) who will be reading excerpts from their books. Passages will come alive as local actors lift words from the pages.

Our day begins with a unique rendition of Summertime by the awesome blues and gospel singer, Jennifer Evans. Snap your fingers to the hip poetry of Sacrificial Poets.  

Take home your very own piece of creative writing. Poet Pam Taylor will take you through an exciting creative writing experience that may inspire you to sign up for a Creative Writing class at The ArtsCenter.
