Introducing the Broken River Writers Library...
it's upstairs at North East Artisans.
The “Library” has come about as BRW were generously donated over 200 books from the estate of Tricia Veale, a local parasitologist and poet,who passed away early in 2017.
BRW now has an extensive range of poetry, some “how to” writing books, books by local authors, anthologies and collections, and even some of Tricia's own poetry books.
A desk has also been donated and sits in one corner, soon to be outfitted with a supply of notepads and pens. It promises to be a cozy little nook in which to read and write.
We’re also looking for half height bookshelves (to fit under the paintings on the walls),
bean bags & floor cushions for this space.
If you know of any that need a new home, contact Carla at firstname.lastname@example.org
2018 is looking like an exciting year for putting pen to paper.
