As part of The Big Read, the Massillon Public Library invites aspiring writers to explore personal writing processes with Deborah Edmisten on Tuesday, August 4, at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom.
Do you fly by the seat of your pants or do you love organization? Stream-of-consciousness or completely outlined? Edmisten, a local author, will speak about methods of organizing yourself as you get down to the nitty-gritty of writing on a regular basis.
Edmisten says, “My desire in writing is to weave a story that will engage and entertain my readers while also causing them to reflect deeply on life. In a world that can often be insensitive to suffering, I hope to draw the reader into an experience where they will ponder themselves and those around them anew.” Her work can be found at Nothing Hidden.
Registration is required and begins at 8:00 a.m. on Friday, July 17 and closes at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, August 2. For more information or to register for this free program, contact Laura Klein at 330-832-9831, x319.
The Big Read is a community reading program focused on a single book. This National Endowment for the Arts initiative, in partnership with Arts Midwest, supports community reading programs across the country. Massillon Museum and its amazing community partners, including the Massillon Public Library, create
innovative and critical programs highlighting the book themes, and exposing participants to new genres and ideas. The selected book is offered to the community for free so that many can participate. This year’s book selection is Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant? by Roz Chast.
