The “Write” Stuff

Posted October 12, 2009 B By John Saccenti

Come to the Library and work on your novel during National Novel Writing Month in November.

Join The Library as it takes part in National Novel Writing Month this year with “write-ins” scheduled for teen and adult writers throughout November. National Novel Writing Month challenges writers to begin a 50,000 novel on midnight, Nov. 1, and finish it by 11:59 p.m. Nov. 30. The Library is kicking the event off with a party in the Youth Services Program room on Sunday, Oct. 25, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.  Following that participants are welcome to attend four scheduled “write-ins.” Writers can bring their lap tops and write, talk about writing, or share their work with others. There will be power outlets for lap tops and coffee and snacks will be available for purchase at The Library’s new café. Refreshments will be served at the kick-off party.

The write-ins will be held on the following dates:
  •  Monday, Nov. 2, from 5 to 9 p.m.;
  • Thursday, Nov. 12, from 2 to 6 p.m.;
  • Tuesday, Nov. 17, from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m.; and
  • Monday, Nov. 23, from 5 to 9 p.m.
