Deschutes Public Library pleased to host the monthly Second Sunday Readings on Sunday, March 13, 2005 at 3:00 p.m. This months reading will be in the Library Admin Conference Room at 507 NW Wall in Bend. This event is free and open to the public.
The monthly readings are the result of the efforts of local writers and poets who felt the need to gather to share their work and their love of writing. Each month has a focus and a featured reader. The gatherings end with an open mic time where anyone willing can share original pieces.
Featured reader for March is Portland poet, Judith Barrington. Barrington was born in Brighton, England and moved to the United States in 1976. Although she has made her home in Portland, Oregon for the past thirty years, she now spends part of each year in England doing readings and workshops. She is the author of three volumes of poetry including her recent book Horses and the Human Soul. Her 2000 memoir, Lifesaving: A Memoir, was the winner of the Lambda Literary Award, finalist for the PEN/Martha Albrand Award for the Art of the Memoir and Oregon Book Award and nominated for a Pushcart Award. Her bestselling book for writers and writing teachers, Writing the Memoir: From Truth to Art. Barrington will be leading a workshop earlier in the day. Interested participants should call 312-1032 for registration information.
