Save the date! I will be doing a public reading of my work in progress – along with the 7 other writers who were in residence with me at Linden Place – on Thursday, June 2nd from 6:30-8 p.m. at 500 Hope St in Bristol.
Genesis Barrera reads from her short story about a young civil war veteran here on the 4th of July. Ben Jolivet reads from a play where Samuel P. Colt is visited upon by a variety of ghosts. Kate Lane reads from a romance novella about a fictional DeWolf cousin. Rochelle Leach reads poems about African American barber Daniel Tanner. Elizabeth Maligranda reads from her TV pilot script set in Pre-Civil War New England. Mia Manzotti reads from her horror novel that has Charlotte DeWolf as the central figure. Curtis Perdue reads poems that connect the prosperity of the house’s occupants to the labor of enslaved people. And, Rebecca Siemering reads haiku poems that take inspiration from various objects in the museum’s collection. Young writers from School One and Goat Hill Writers’ program Write Rhode Island will open the event by reading from their short fiction. I hope to see you there! #LindenPlace #BristolRI #RIWriters #WritersResidency
