Writers’ Wednesday 5/9/18

Writers’ Wednesday
Wednesday, May 9, 2018
5:00 – 5:30 pm Book signing
5:30 – 6:30 pm Lecture


This month our guest author is Nancy Raven who will discuss her book called, A Postal Journey: Discovering Nevada Through it’s Post Offices.

A journey with the intent to get to know her new home state turned into a historical and memorable experience for local artist and musician Nancy Raven.

“When I first moved here from California, I wanted to see more of the state,” Raven said. “A friend suggested that I take pictures of all the towns, but I wanted more of a focus. Then I read an article about how many post offices are closing and that became my focus, to visit and show the post offices throughout Nevada before they’re gone.”

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.
