Local author David Read Barker has agreed to speak at the Maryland Writers’ Association – Annapolis Chapter meeting on Wednesday February 20, 2013. He will speak on his life and successes as a writer, and his talk is entitled, “A Tale of Two Books.” The first book, published traditionally, is a cruising guide to the Black Sea, based on a circumnavigation of the Black Sea with his wife in 2010 in their sailboat. The second book, Volunteers in the African Bush, is a self-published collection of 21 memoirs by fellow Peace Corps volunteers in Sierra Leone, 1965-67.
The meeting is open to the public and free to MWA members and first-time guests. All others may pay $5.00. Annual dues to MWA are $40.00 and include other benefits on top of monthly attendance. MWA meetings meet the third Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm in room 205 at Maryland Hall. Maryland Hall is located at 801 Chase Street, Annapolis, MD 21401.
