12/4/21 Meeting Recap, & More!

Group Updates:

  • A nice-sized anthology of writers met at the library on Saturday December 4th. (Also… an anthology of writers, get it?!?!)
  • Our hearts were thoroughly warmed as we listened to our members read their sweet and moving pieces about traditions. Everyone nailed it! Laughter, tears, and more laughter. Deeply personal stories brimming with nostalgia and hygge.
  • We congratulated member Jillian Van Hefty on her fabulous win in the 2022 Erma Bombeck Humorist-In-Residence contest!

Announcements:

    • This is due to the New Year’s Day holiday (the first Saturday of January also happens to be the first day of 2022!)
