The Library opened the box marked AUTHOR and let their patrons have a look at the people and the process behind the books that are on the shelves. From children’s books to inspirational works, through biography and history, on to true crime and non-fiction, the authors were there talking about and sharing their work. The energy and inspiration was marvelous.
I was privileged to be asked to do a reading as part of my writers group, the Longwood Writers Guild. Most of us do short stories and memoir, so I did a couple of my poems instead of an excerpt from the 107th Street Murder. One of our resident poets, John W. came to support us, but I asked him to perform one his poems for us and he kindly did.
I enjoyed it and I am sure the patrons of the library did too.
