Writers Cafe on 3rd Thur @ Haggens in Barkley Village

Join us at 3:30 pm on the 3rd Thursday of the month at Haggens in Barkley Village for the Writers Cafe. It’s a chance to talk and ask questions with other writers about any topic relating to writing or publishing. Topics in January varied from: website issues, the meaning of “literature”, the PNWA’s writer’s contest and more.

Debu Mujumdar brought two books he is reading by Nobel Laureates: A Personal Matter by Kenzaburo Oe and Never Let me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. Ed Farrell talked about his interest in Russian literature and poetry. Rod Haynes announced his photography exhibit at Fairhaven Realty for the Art Walk. We also talked about his civil war historical novel and publishing through university presses. Redd Becker touched on her YA science fiction novels.

It was a diverse, lively and informative meeting. Feel free to join us February 15th. Haggens’ sitting area is almost empty at that time and coffee is only $1.09 with refills. All writers are welcome. See you there, Redd and Debu
