We’re already halfway through the SOMOS Winter Writers Series, but never fear, there’s plenty more literary goodness to come.
Trust me: if you’ve never been to one of these, it’s really worth checking out. Even if you’re not much of a reader, it’s a wonderful experience to sit and watch someone share something they’ve created with many hours of love and labor; plus, the Arthur Bell Auditorium is a truly incredible space, and it’s designed perfectly for events like this.
Just pick the theme or topic that seems appealing to you and try it once, and I’ll never ask again, I promise.
All Writers Series events are held on Thursdays at the Arthur Bell Auditorium in the Harwood Museum at 7:00pm. SOMOS and Harwood members $6; non-members $8.
