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

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.

I like these kinds of events. In such places, I can find people with the same interests. But lately, I’m busy in college, and there is no free time to attend such events. I even had to turn to the pro essay writing service for help to complete all my assignments on time. I hope that soon I’ll have free time for myself and my hobbies.
