Writers Reading VI, March 28 at 3:00 in the Library!

The Library is planning a dynamic, open-mic-style Writers Reading with cake for Wednesday, March 28, at 3:00 in the Library!

PETE_OUR_GANG

Everyone is invited to attend and need not RSVP. Tell your friends. If you would like to read, please send margaret.montet@bucks.edu a quick note and tell me your birthday month. Prepare some original writing and please keep it under five minutes. Your story/essay/poem does not need to be birthday-themed; that is just a gimmick for decorations and snacks. Your work can be about  a n y t h I n g.

These events are fun and inspiring, so please plan to join us! We’ll supply the cake.
