About the Event
The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow presents three accomplished writers in residence, Ruth Weinstein, Heather Diamond, and Storme Maynard as featured readers at this month’s Poetluck; 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 19th.
Ozark poet Ruth Weinstein will be reading a selection of her most recent poems and from her collection of eco-philosophical essays. Ruth is the author of Back to the Land: Alliance Colony to the Ozarks in Four Generations, which will be published at the end of 2019.
Heather Diamond will be reading a chapter from her recently completed memoir, Hot and Noisy: White Ghost in Hong Kong. Heather’s first book, American Aloha: Cultural Tourism and the Negotiation of Tradition, was published in 2008 by the University of Hawaii.
Storme Maynard will read a chapter from her new murder mystery/suspense novel set in New Orleans five years after Hurricane Katrina. Storme is a writer, poet, and artist who has been published in Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine and Ladybug, a magazine for young children.
Poetluck is the third Thursday of every month. It starts at 6:30 p.m. with a potluck dinner. Readings start at 7:15. Local writers may share their work for up to five minutes following readings by the featured writers. Readings may be poems, prose, or songs. Poetluck is a supportive environment: the perfect setting to premier new work. Bring a dish to share and join us for an enjoyable evening.
