Writers Read/Hilltowns – Featured Reader Rebecca Daniels
June 7 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Here’s how it works: The featured writer reads recent work and describes the journey to publication, followed by Q & A. Then the floor opens to other writers, who can read for five minutes each; we also draw two names for 10-minute readings. If you want to read, put your name in the hat before 2:15.
Rebecca Daniels (MFA, PhD) taught performance, writing, and speaking in several liberal arts universities for over 25 years, including St. Lawrence University from 1992-2015. She was the founding producing director of Artists Repertory Theatre in Portland, OR, and directed with many professional Portland theatre companies in the 1980s. In 2015, she retired from teaching and moved to the Pioneer Valley, and during their 2019 season, she served as co-producer for Silverthorne Theater Company in Greenfield, MA. She is the author of the groundbreaking Women Stage Directors Speak (McFarland, 1996), and has been published in multiple professional theatre journals. She is currently working on two full-length plays and recently completed a memoir, Finding Sisters, that explores how DNA testing helped her find her genetic parents and other relatives in spite of being given up for a closed adoption at birth.
