Write For Your Life!

Dear Writers,
The Moore Free Library in Newfane is offering Write For Your Life!, a memoir-writing workshop led by Deborah Lee Luskin. The workshop will meet at the Library for six sessions from 1pm-3pm on Fridays: March 10 & 24; April 7 & 21; May 5 & 19.
During these sessions, Deborah Lee Luskin will lead participants in writing exercises geared to stir memory by providing guided meditations for timed writing exercises. We will use positive techniques that encourage participants to write freely, to listen fully, and to dig deeply to find meaning and assign shape to the stories of their lives.
Supported by a Small and Inspiring grant from the Vermont Community Foundation, the class is free. Class size is limited, and registration is required. To register, please contact Librarian Louise Sirois at 365-7948 or moorefreelibrary@gmail.com

Author Castle Freeman Jr. to speak at the Library

 

On February 14th, Tuesday, from 1pm to 3pm,  Newfane local and author Castle Freeman will read excerpts from several of his entertaining Vermont tales written over the years.

Castle is the award-winning author of the acclaimed novel Go With Me, which was made into a major motion picture in 2016, as well as the writer of numerous other novels (most recently “The Devil in the Valley”), short stories, and essays.

Castle found his muse when he moved to Vermont:  “Practically all the writing I have done—fiction, essays, history, journalism, and more—has been in one way or another about rural northern New England, in particular the State of Vermont, and the lives of its inhabitants, a source of unique and undiminishing interest, at least to me.”

Lessons from the Long Trail – How Twenty-five Days Changed My Life

Thursday, January 12 at 6 pm

luskin

Newfane resident and writer Deborah Lee Luskin will talk about her 2016 through-hike of The Long Trail, the oldest recreational footpath in the United States.

Between August 15 and September 8, Deb and a friend walked from Massachusetts to Canada. They’d both just turned sixty and decided that a long walk would be a good way to figure out what comes next in what poet Mary Oliver calls “your one wild and precious life.” Walking and talking, these two women reached the Canadian border with new ideas about how to live more mindfully.

In the Crowell Gallery –  Free.
