Join the Association of Rhode Island authors at Cranston’s The Elephant Room for “The Lively Literati” on Thursday, May 28th at 6:30 p.m. This month, Rhode Island writers Robert Sendling (I Am Am I), Ray Wolf (Diary of Love Poems) and Sylvia Weber (A Guide for Compassion in Political Power) will be reading excerpts from their work. Following the readings, the audience is invited to utilize our “open mic” to share a portion of their own short, creative works. The event will be hosted by poetry editor Deborah Halliday (The Poetry of Godey’s Ladies Book.) Admission is free.
Visit Symposium Books at 240 Westminster Street in Providence on Satruday, May 30 at 1 p.m. for a very special Rhode Island Women’s Roundtable discussion featuring authors Patricia Mitchell, Nora Hall, Leigh Brown and Vikki Corliss.
Each Saturday from May 9 through October 3, The North Scituate Farmer’s Market will feature a Rhode Island author at its market on the Scituate Art Festival grounds at 46 Institute Lane across from the North Scituate Public Library.
The market supports local farmers & businesses who offer a wide variety of quality, locally grown seasonal fruits & vegetables, local meats and hand crafted goods. Come and spend each Saturday listening to live music while supporting your local arts groups — and even enjoy lunch from local food trucks. The market is open every Saturday 9-12, rain or shine. See you at the market!
