Ballard Library to host “It’s About Time Writer’s Reading Series” this week

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on April 10th, 2017

Ballard Library (5614 22nd Ave NW) will be hosting the 330th meeting of the “It’s About Time Writers’ Reading Series” this Thursday, April 13, from  6 p.m. – 7:45 p.m. The series is held at the Ballard branch every second Thursday of the month.

This month’s presentation features readings from Julene Tripp Weaver, David Fewster and Meg Pasquini. Judy Bentley on the Writer’s Craft, will also be speaking about “Staying True to History in YA Fiction.”

Between the author readings, open mic time will be available for three minutes per person.

The series was founded in 1989 by Esther Helfgott and is dedicated to the memory of Anna Helfgott who began writing at the age of 70 and her teacher Nelson Bentley who helped many learn the craft of writing. The group is now curated by Peggy Sturdivant and Katie Tynan.

“The It’s About Time Writers Reading Series is dedicated to an end of racism, homophobia, antisemitism, homelessness & war,” writes the group on their website. 

All aspiring writers are welcome to attend the meeting no matter their writing experience.

    Looks as if they are real successful. The only hate I now see comes from the mind-numbed robotic left leaners, and is OK by them. A special kind of stupid allows for this.

    First: you just have to turn a reading series at a library political don’t you?

    Second: “The only hate I now see comes from the mind-numbed robotic left leaners…” Seriously? Either you are the most oblivious person in the world or are so seething with hate for those that don’t agree with you that you make up your own reality. There is plenty of hate on the left and the right.

    Seek mental help man, you’re tailspinning into a mentally unstable, alternate reality that you may never emerge from.

    I was in the Library yesterday. There was definitely a couple of potential Hemingways and Steinbecks lounging in every chair. Some were awake.
