Writing workshop comes to Lakehills

Posted in:

The Lakehills Area Library will host a writing workshop sponsored by Texas Writes on Sept. 28 featuring presentations from two accomplished writers – poet Naomi Shihab Nye and author Donna M. Johnson.

Nye will lead a presentation titled “You are Living in a Poem” focusing on ways to live a life filled with more poetry, and Johnson will focus on character development in a talk titled “Writing Memoir: How to Turn People into Characters.”

Guests will have an opportunity to ask questions of the speakers to learn more about the craft of writing and the life of writers.

It is a free presentation that will be open to the public beginning at 10 a.m.

It is brought to the library through Texas Writes, a statewide program developed by the Writers’ League of Texas and supported by a grant from the Tocker Foundation. This will be the second event in its new season series, which sends authors to libraries around the state to talk to readers.

Those interested in attending are asked to contact the library at 830-510-2777 or to drop by the facility at 7200 FM 1283 to pre-register.

Also in the vein of writing, the Lakehills Library Writers Group will meet to talk about what its members are working on and to hear local author Janalyn Knight talk on Thursday, Sept. 19, at 2 p.m. The group meets on the third Thursday of each month.

On Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 1 p.m., the Lakehills Daytime Book Club will meet to talk about Mitch Album’s book “The Next Person You Meet in Heaven.” Refreshments will be served at that event.

In addition, the library will host a Community Garage Sale on Saturday, Sept. 21, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Those interested in getting a booth can call the library or stop in for additional details.
