Writers’ Wednesday – 4/11/18

Writers’ Wednesday
Wednesday, April 11, 2018
5:00 – 5:30 pm Book signing
5:30 – 6:30 pm Lecture


This month our guest author is Richard L. Mitchell  who will discuss his latest book called, Strawberry Valley Legends.

For more than one hundred and sixty years a rest stop and tavern on California’s Highway 50 in the Sierra Nevada has existed to serve a traveling public. The cavalcade of immigrants who rambled by–gold diggers, silver miners, and hopeful pilgrims–forged our Western history as well as our my myths. Generation after generation, the dreamers and the dregs wound their way through Strawberry Valley–many became legends. This is their story.

The Writers’ Wednesday Lecture Series, held the second Wednesday of each month, features a different author who takes part in a book signing, a presentation and a question-and-answer session with the audience. A wine and cheese reception precedes the lecture.
The goal of the program is to highlight writers who specifically focus on Nevada, the Great Basin, or the West in general. The authors talk about the content of their books but also share details about the creative process.

 

Admission to Writers’ Wednesday is $5 for adults; free for members and children 17 and younger. Seating is limited and attendees are encouraged to arrive early to get their seats. For more information, call (775) 688-1190.
