FIRST DRAFT WRITERS’ SERIES
Thursday, May 18, 2023
5:30 PM – NOTE THE NEW TIME!
Rebecca Hom is drawn to stories that puzzle her, that stimulate her curiosity. She looks for something that portrays the human experience in an unusual yet universal way. Stories of the land, how it came to be and how we came to this place. Rebecca will be the first storyteller we’ve featured, and we’re excited to include this facet of literary arts.
7:00 PM – in the building +Zoom (Link Here)
Made possible in part through the generous support of Oregon Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
