WordsWest Literary Series, May 16

WordsWest Literary Series presents “Home Unsettled Home”: Writers Rachel Kessler and Matthew Zapruder will investigate ideas of home, the changing landscape and heart-scape of where we’re from and where we live now. Both authors work in multiple genres, and the evening will include a guided writing exercise for every experience level. Favorite Poem shared by Eva Duleba from Mud Bay. Plus snacks, and C & P serves wine and cider as well as coffee (for those who don’t do caffeine after the afternoon).
