Joni Cole is back for another
Writing Workshop
Saturday, March 24th, 10-noon
Joni B. Cole, seasoned writing instructor and author of Good Naked: Reflections on How to Write More, Write Better, and Be Happier, will be leading this no-pressure workshop.
If you missed January's workshop, Joni will be bringing another "prompt" to mine your uncharted story material. Writing from a prompt and for a set amount of time with no stopping, often allows the subconscious to emerge with some amazing creativity. We then share our stories if we want.
Author and writing teacher Joni B. Cole believes there is a writer in anyone who chooses to follow that path, and that writing and sharing our stories is not only personally meaningful, but one of the most powerful forms of social activism.
Come, learn, have fun, and leave your self doubts at the door!

March 21st, Lincoln in the Bardo, by George Saunders
February 1862. The Civil War is less than one year old. The fighting has begun in earnest, and the nation has begun to realize it is in for a long, bloody struggle. Meanwhile, President Lincoln’s beloved eleven-year-old son, Willie, lies upstairs in the White House, gravely ill. In a matter of days, despite predictions of a recovery, Willie dies and is laid to rest in a Georgetown cemetery. “My poor boy, he was too good for this earth,” the president says at the time. “God has called him home.” Newspapers report that a grief-stricken Lincoln returned to the crypt several times alone to hold his boy’s body.
From that seed of historical truth, George Saunders spins an unforgettable story of familial love and loss that breaks free of its realistic, historical framework into a thrilling, supernatural realm both hilarious and terrifying. Willie Lincoln finds himself in a strange purgatory, where ghosts mingle, gripe, commiserate, quarrel, and enact bizarre acts of penance. Within this transitional state—called, in the Tibetan tradition, the bardo—a monumental struggle erupts over young Willie’s soul.
Copies of the books are available at the front desk. Please stop by and request one.
