Writers Read @ The Inn at Norton Hill – Featured Reader Melissa Volker
June 3 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Co-sponsored by: Straw Dog Writers Guild and Nan Parati (owner, Elmer’s Store and the Inn at Norton Hill)
Featured Reader: Melissa Volker
Melissa Volker’s debut novel, Delilah of Sunhats Swans, received a Five Star Review from Reader’s Favorites and was praised by Alice Fulton, Guggenheim Fellow Poet, who said, “Delilah…is a charmer, a being blessed with a charisma as mysterious as it is luminous. You won’t soon forget her.” It was followed by a collection of short stories and a novella, a life undone. The daughter of a playwright/novelist and a poet, Melissa is a member of the Straw Dog Writer’s Guild and recently won the Words and Brushes third collaborative competition with her short story, “Truths,” published on www.wordsandbrushes.com. She will read from her debut literary novel and her newest shorts collection, Where We Go, copies of which will be available for sale.
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 read for five minutes each. If you want to read, put your name in the hat before 3:15. (Hint: you get five minutes.)
