The Reading-Writing Connection (RWC), is a focused group of writers who meet twice per month (first and third Wednesday) to encourage and foster each other to write and publish their work. This is accomplished through guest speakers and readings that trigger the imagination and bring back life memories.

The primary goal of RWC, is to encourage people to write their memoirs or stories relating to their lives or the lives of their families. Our meetings combine a book club aspect with a writing circle purpose. They are geared to trigger memories, put them in writing, and leave a legacy for families, friends, and community members. There is also a social aspect, where members who are interested go to a local restaurant for lunch following the meeting.

Everyone who is interested is welcome to attend the meetings. This is an informal group. Writers are welcome to come as often or as little as they wish to read, listen or share experiences orally.

The public is invited to join us for special events, such as speakers, presentations by writers from other regions, etc. or at our regular meetings where speakers/presentations are scheduled over the noon hour to enable members of the public to pop in to listen.

Note:  Check out the new Items of Interest page.

 


Resources gathered will be shared amongst group members 
and available to the public in the library.
