  • The BWC writers who were willing to "put themselves out there" and share their writing

Members of the Bluegrass Writers Coalition will hold a free Community Reading on Saturday, October 15 from 1:00 to 2:15 at the Paul Sawyier Public Library River Room. This reading is open to the public and all are welcome. 

Come and join more than a dozen local writers as they read 5 minute excerpts from their novels, memoirs, plays, and poetry.  You will be amazed at the diversity and talent by these writers as they (sometimes reluctantly) share their work through their voices rather than their pens.


Following the readings, refreshments will be served and the authors will hold a question-and-answer session. Participating authors will also be available to meet and chat with the attendees.
