The Writers’ Mill reading went really well on Sunday. We had about 35 people there altogether, and we successfully negotiated microphone, cables and chairs to entertain them. The staff at Cedar Mill Library were fantastic and had the room all set up ready before we arrived. They even had water available for the speakers (this speaker really really appreciated that!), plus hot drinks on the table in the entry. We just added chocolate (and this speaker really really appreciated chocolate too!).
Of course, we also added anecdotes, snippets, chapters, essays, questions, information about our group, and even some jokes. It all worked really well.
Matthew probably got the most laughs, with his humorous and informative rendition of story and research. Minnie offered a delightfully unique take on Jennifer’s cat story.
Fred listened intently.
Joe asked great questions.
And the door prize was surely won by the very best man!
Many thanks for our unofficial photographer, Jean Harkin, and I hope you enjoy this small selection from her great pictures.
If you weren’t there on Sunday, you missed a really fun event, but I hope this blogpost allows you to share in the flavor. What do you think? Should we do it again? Powells anyone?
