Public invited to Jan. 4 Release Party & Reading at Dunn County Museum
Ever wonder what your neighbor is thinking as they look out their window? If your neighbor is a member of the literary nonprofit Dunn County Writers (DCW), chances are he or she is contemplating more than the weather— they are probably noticing how the world looks and feels, so they can write about it later.
During 2015, this group of grassroots writers held monthly workshops with a seasonal theme. The result is the publication of DCW’s second annual booklet of original work, A Pen for All Seasons.
To celebrate and share, Dunn County Writers is presenting a Booklet Release Party & Reading from 7 to 8 p.m. on Monday, January 4, 2016 at the Dunn County Historical Museum, 153 Museum Trail, Dunn Center, N.D. A booklet sale and signing, accompanied by cookies, punch and coffee, will top off the evening. This event is free and open to the public and is partly funded by the North Dakota Humanities Council. Dunn County Historical Society has generously donated the venue.
“Our members worked very hard on this collection, giving it their all,” said DCW Executive Director Jennifer Strange, who develops and leads each session’s Guided Writing Exercises. “To see this come together, to hold the booklet in our hands, is a thrill for our writers and, we hope, for the community at large. We are grateful to everyone who supported us through the process.”
