Writers Read: 2021 Virtual Celebration and Featured Authors

Join us live on Facebook Saturday, February 20, 7 p.m. for the third annual Writer’s Read Celebration. Featured authors will gather virtually to read original stories, essays, and poems on this year’s theme “Pandemic”. Download a printable event program here.

Thank you to all the writers who shared their works with us. We received a record number of works this year from talented North Coast writers.
