Join us Friday, March 10th at 7 p.m. for the 5th Annual Writers Read Celebration. If Ernest Hemingway arrived on the North Coast, what would he say? Talented writers from across the region have all sorts of ideas. He might: ask why he left Cuba; tell stories and knock back a bourbon at the Driftwood Inn; recount how a boy reeled in a seagull; discuss fishing with a youngster at the library; or describe how a 12-step program member took flight as a crow. Join us in listening to writers share these and other stories. Come to the library for refreshments and company, or watch online as we celebrate writing, reading, and Hemingway!
