we are capable of attention,

Don’t Miss The Community ReadAround

Join us for a Community ReadAround at Yellow House on Saturday, Dec. 4, at 2 p.m. Writers and artists will have the opportunity to read their work aloud in small group circles to give everyone the chance to engage with the work and each other. Fans, friends, and family encouraged to attend.

(And finish the day with a champagne toast!)
 

Building Community, Together

At either Release Party event, you’ll engage with other artists and writers in the book, talk to your fans, and make new friends. You’ll also be able to pick up extra copies of the anthology, purchase a matching journal or two, and enjoy a fabulous collection of work from local artists.

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO LATELY

Wine, Women, and Words In the Garden


What a joy it was to be back together in person, celebrating rivers, women’s leadership, and women’s creative expression at this event—not to mention the return of the fabulous lavender cake made by AvesBaking! Grateful to Nancy Powell of Riverfront Parks Now and artist/environmental educator Abby Howard Murphy for showing us how ordinary human beings (like them, like you) can make a big difference. Learn the facts. Reduce your footprint. Listen to women.—JW

WINE WOMEN AND WORDS

RIVER VIEWS

OUT AND ABOUT AT CHAMBLIN’S

The Last Word


“What a lovely illusion!
An old car tire, a mossy mattress, 
a shopping cart strewn on the river’s bank.
The drone of a leaf blower interrupts.
And the river says, ‘Hush!’
We have a time limit.
We are on notice.
And the river says, ‘Quick, quick before it’s too late!’”
—Nancy Kysela, Fall Series writer (excerpt, found poem)
