Readers and Writers Wanted

While we are not quite ready to resume in-house programming, we are ready to tackle virtual writing groups and book clubs–because one thing the pandemic has taught us is that immersing ourselves in the world of words can help alleviate stress. It allows us to process and lets us escape. It brings a sense of normalcy to this unique and chaotic world.

Reading and writing can also bring us together. So without further ado, please meet the newest page on our blog and one of our newest favorite activities in the world: Virtual Clubs

We have three of them, because, as we all know, the best things come in threes. Except, maybe, poison ivy. Click the pics for more information on what we are reading and writing this September.

Beyond the Book

This reading group is perfect for lovers of historical and literary fiction, nonfiction, and memoirs. On the first of the month, we will announce a new book. On the 15th of each month, we will post a review along with an invitation for readers to join in the discussion online.

Novel Characters

Genre fiction best describes the books we’ll read in this very social, socially distanced book club. Grab a snack, a drink of choice, and your computer to zoom with fellow bibliophiles every fourth Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm. Participants must sign up to receive the zoom link.


Lovely reminder of how hard it is to be a good writer and why we need other writers to support us.

Pen 2 Page Writers Cafe

If you enjoy penning poetry, short stories, articles, or entire novels, you’ve come to the right place. This local writers group will take place entirely online, beginning with a writing prompt and check-in on the second Thursday of each month. Will include a writing and publishing Q&A forum.
