Art Presence Authors Read!

Posted by on Mar 21, 2015 in Author Readings, Events | 0 comments

Have you heard about our new program for writers? Art Presence Art Center now carries the written works of 15 authors from Jacksonville, Oregon, and three authors read from their works for you once a month in our meeting room upstairs from the gallery.

Diana Coogle reads from her book, Living With All My Senses, at the first Art Presence Authors Read author reading on Saturday, March 6, 2015

Saturday, March 6, after the artist reception for our Impressions show, marked our first three author readings. First up was Steve Carlson, reading from his book, Almost Graceland. Next Diana Coogle read from her book, Living With All My Senses: Twenty Five Years of Life on the Mountain. Anna Elkins led from behind with readings from her wonderful book of original poetry, The Space Between. We are delighted that 10-20 people attended each reading, and we thank the community for their support of our local authors and our new program!

On Saturday, April 4, we will have two novelists reading from and signing their books:

1:00pm: John Sack
2:00pm: Christin Weber

Though not all-inclusive, information about most of our authors follows. Watch for your favorite authors and plan to attend as they appear at Art Presence Art Center for their own readings!
