Historical author (and poet) D.L. Fowler is part of our triple-header event! This is the re-scheduled event that couldn’t happen because too much white stuff fell from our skies!
First we celebrate Lincoln’s 210th Birthday at 4pm with a special reading, trivia and some tasting of cake… (from Abe’s favorite recipe!). PLEASE SHARE the Facebook Event Page here!
Our host, author DL Fowler (the Lincoln Guy) will share stories about Lincoln's childhood. He'll also introduce us to some of the unheralded common people who shared intimate moments with the gangly prairie lawyer as he led America through some of our darkest days.
We'll take a virtual tour of the recently restored Lincoln Cottage where he and his family escaped Washington DC's summer heat during his years as president.
There'll be cake! 4 to 5pm
You can even pick up an autographed copy of DL Fowler's biographical novel, Lincoln Raw.
But Wait there is more…..
At 5:15 join us for a free writer’s workshop. Please share the Facebook event page here!
Free Writers Workshop: Crafting Intimacy with Readers
led by DL Fowler
It's not so much what you say, but how you say it, that draws readers to the heart of your stories. Learn the secrets of rhythm and the sounds of words that make stories unforgettable. Learn how the arrangement of words can generate cinematic texture in your writing. 5:15 to 6:30 pm
But that’s not all. . .!
At 6:45pm there will be a short reading of poetry by DL Fowler and then a community open mic. The first 12 to 15 people on the sign-up list will have 3 to 4 minutes to read a poem, or very short prose. Please share the Facebook Event Page here . 6:45 to 8pm.
Hope YOU can join us for some or all of the Triple header! We are going to have fun!
