Annual Writers Read Celebration 

The library’s NW Authors Speaker Series hosts the Annual Writers Read Celebration. Every year from November through January, we ask writers from across the region to submit entries interpreting a specific theme. Submissions, which can be poems, essays, or stories, are limited to 600 words. A volunteer panel then selects 12-14 entries without knowing the authors’ information. Writers gather for an evening event to read their works aloud. This has quickly become a favorite event in the community.
