Deschutes Public Library pleased to host the monthly Second Sunday Readings on Sunday, April 10, 2005 at 3:00 p.m. This months reading will be held at McMenamins Old St. Francis School in the Rambler Room. This event is free and open to the public. Food and beverages may be purchased during the reading.
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.
April’s featured reader is Bend author, Ellen Santasiero. She is a freelance writer who has published essays, articles and interviews in Northwest Review, Marlboro Review, High Desert Journal, Oregon Home, the Source and Bend Living. She earned an M.F.A. in creative writing and literature from Bennington College in 1999, and is the recipient of a Caldera and a Soapstone fellowship. She is currently working on lyric essays, a memoir and a collection of interviews with northwest nonfiction writers. A native New Yorker, she’s lived in Bend for 15 years.
