Bethel’s Byrd’s Books Welcomes Authors to October Episodes Of Write America via Zoom
Write America, the weekly virtual author series now on Zoom, prides itself on featuring award-winning, nationally-renowned authors, as well as new and emerging artists, in readings and conversations about how books and art might bridge the deep divisions in our nation. The prestigious series, now in its 2nd year, is conceived and curated by author Roger Rosenblatt with online host, Bethel’s Byrd’s Books’ owner Alice Hutchinson. Streamed on Mondays, 7:00pm to 8:00pm, The Write America events are free to the public.
“There may be no more pleasing picture in the world than of a child peering into a book,” says Roger Rosenblatt, “the past and the future entrancing each other.” The authors of Write America urge you to peer into their worlds and perhaps uncover our commonalities amidst our differences, sharing their words as welcomed morsels of thought-provoking positivity.
