The one and only Justin Lander, aka Leo Lander from Vermont Vaudeville, will be auctioning off tasty, home-made pies with much enthusiasm and frivolity! In between pies, we want to get your talents on stage! We want ten people to share their talents: sing, dance, read poetry, do a comedy sketch. Anyone who would like to be in the talent show should contact Library Director, Lisa Sammet, to get a slot. Call the library at 472-5948. All the money raised in the pie auction will go to the Jeudevine Expansion Project. There will be refreshments!
The event will be held at the Hardwick Town House.
Experience literary art at Jeudevine Memorial Library in 99 words.
Join visiting literary artist, Charli Mills, for a free flash fiction writing workshop at the Jeudevine Library. Participants will learn and practice the 99-word literary art form called Flash Fiction. Flash fiction is small, yet mighty. It’s a literary art form that: teaches brevity (every word counts), allows writers to explore story ideas and character development, clarifies craft techniques on a small scale, imprints a problem-solving pattern on the brain (opens creativity) and harnesses the power of creative practice
Wrangling Words begins with an explanation of what flash fiction is and offers ideas of literary craft to apply. Charli will offer prompts and guidance. Participants will craft three flash fiction stories that can be imaginative or based on a true story. Each participant will get to share their stories with the group. The activity concludes with appreciative feedback.
The workshop serves to empower diverse voices, help emerging writers find their way, and give experienced writers new tools. This is not the place for critique. Wrangling Words creates safe space for writers to explore, grow, and play. All genres, levels of experience, and interests are welcome.
Charli Mills will also be at the Jeudevine Library Farmers Market table on Friday, July 12 to talk to people and sign books.
Charli Mills is lead buckaroo at a global literary community at CarrotRanch.com. Carrot Ranch is an imaginary place for real writers. She’s authored hundreds of flash fiction stories, written over 300 magazine and news articles, and publishes flash fiction anthologies. Carrot Ranch’s mission is to make literary art accessible. She lives in Hancock with her veteran spouse and has a rock-picking problem resolved at #CarrotRanchRocks on Facebook.
There will be light refreshments. For more information call the Jeudevine Library at 472-5948.
Come to an evening of books, drinks, and wine at the lovely White Water Gallery at 5 River Street in East Hardwick (near the bridge over the Lamoille River). The Galaxy Bookshop, the White Water Gallery and the Jeudevine Library are hosting another iteration of the Pages in the Pub. Our panel of four readers will discuss their summer reading suggestions. Begin the late afternoon with drinks and an appetizer buffet with treats donated by local businesses. A cash bar with wine and beer will be catered by The Woods Lodge of Norwich, VT. After a look at the art work, listen to the great reading recommendations by our panel of one bookseller, one librarian and two avid readers. Linger to discuss books and art!
Tickets are $20, are limited to 35 people and will be available at the Galaxy Bookshop and the Jeudevine Library. Tickets will go on sale in July! The Galaxy Bookshop will take orders for the books discussed during the event. A portion of the sales and all other proceeds from the event will go to the Jeudevine Library Expansion Project.
The White Water Gallery will be opening its second show of the summer with watercolorist Louise Arnold.
