Be sure to join us on Wednesday, January 21st for the first-ever Annapolis Chapter MWA Members’ Read and Sale Night. For this event, four of our members will be reading from (and in one case singing) their published works, after which attendees will have the opportunity to browse, purchase, and have the authors autograph the publications. Our featured authors represent a wonderful variety of genres:
- Mike Pace is a thriller writer and author of Dead Light and the recently published One to Go. Of Dead Light, Kirkus Review states, “Pace crafts compelling characters in service to a thrilling plot with narrative riches.”
- Leigh Goff is a young adult-genre author writing bewitching fiction. Her debut novel,Disenchanted, the story of a young witch trying to break a true love curse, is now available.
- Jane Elkin is the founder of the Broadneck Writers’ Workshop and author of World Class: Poems Inspired By the ESL Classroom. Her poetry and prose have appeared in dozens of journals, both domestic and foreign, including Kestrel,Kansas City Voices, Ducts, and Off the Coast.
- Lee Chapman wrote his first poems at age 15, but spent most of his life energy helping physicists smash atoms at Fermilab. Now he writes songs and poems in which he explores the continuum between serious and silly. Lee will both read some of his poems and perform a song from his CD.
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. The Annapolis MWA chapter typically meets the third Wednesday of every month in room 205 at Maryland Hall. Maryland Hall is located at 801 Chase Street, Annapolis, MD 21401. However, for October, we meet in room 307. For more information visit: www.marylandwriters.org.
