Ballard Writers Jam at Egan’s on Tuesday night

For the past few months, writers have been reading their original work at Egan’s Ballard Jam House, and Tuesday, June 12 at 7 p.m. will be the final Ballard Writers Jam of the summer. It’s the third event of its kind, and according to Peggy Sturdivant, each one has been a full house.

From Sturdivant:

Last month local writer Scott McCredie (Balance) said he would never go onstage. This month he’s doing it. Faye Thornburgh, a high school senior, will make her debut. Jennifer D. Munro, who has lived in Ballard all of her 24 married years (The Erotica Writer’s Husband & Other Stories) will discuss how her husband almost died on their wedding night. Wendy Hinman tells a tale not included in her recent book, Tightwads on the Loose. Rita Bresnahan (Walking One Another Home: Moments of Grace in the Midst of Alzheimer’s) will tell a very different story (involving a toy giraffe) and Helen Landalf (Flyaway) and her husband Steven Bishofsky will combine music and words to tell how cancer brought them together.

The readings are organized by the Ballard Writers Collective and Secret Garden Books.
