What is our Mission at Writers Circle Around the Table?

Book Launch party for Nadine Justice, author of I'm a Coal Miner's Daughter, But I Cain't Sang

Writers Circle’s mission is to bring beginning writers, accomplished writers, and anyone who enjoys writing stories, essays, poems and/or articles together around the table where we make the effort to enlighten, empower and to provide opportunities to discover the path to reach their writing goals.

A class at Writers Circle studio in 2010. Comfortable and casual, fun and filled with interesting information on writing.

Book Launch Party for Echoes Across the Blue Ridge

Although I am wiped out from my busy weekend, I can't sleep just yet.

Kathryn Byer and City Lights Books threw a great Book Launch Pary for Echoes Across the Blue Ridge today. A large group of Netwest members, contributors to the anthology, and guests arrived around five o'clock to sign books, to have their books signed, to meet and greet and drink champagne.

I stayed busy most of the time giving out the complimentary copies to members, signing up new members for NCWN, and helping our contributors purchase extra books. City Lights Books, (Chris) was most helpful by running the member discounted books through his store. That saved me from having to figure sales tax and handle change. I was relieved because I was not prepared to do that.

Everyone seemed to have a great time. Spring Street Cafe served a nice spread and kept the platters filled and the glasses full. I fully recommend that restaurant. I had dinner there Saturday night and ate the most wonderful pasta dish with shrimp, artichokes, black olives, and a scrumptious olive oil and wine sauce. I cleaned my plate except for the olives, which I'm not too fond of in anything. That sauce was to die for and I understand they use it in other pasta dishes on the menu.

My hat is off to Kay Byer. She is program coordinator for NCWN West and handled this big party like a pro. Thanks, Kay.
