BLUE HILL, Maine — The first annual session of The Blue Hill Writers Group, composed of writers from, India, Canada, Nigeria and across the United States from California to Minnesota, will read selections of their work in poetry, fiction and nonfiction at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 9, at the Blue Hill Library. The readings will be followed by questions and discussion from the audience.
This event is part of a two-week workshop and symposium convened by local author Lucretia Grindle and Los Angeles writer Kate J Korman. A collection of the group’s work, entitled “Fresh Pipes,” has been published by Blue Hill’s Borealis Press and will be available for purchase.
Members of The Blue Hill Writers Group come from diverse backgrounds, work in all genres and are at different stages of their careers. Some are published, some are completing first works. Their material ranges from the genocides in Kurdistan to growing up on Chicago’s South Side.
Co-Founder, Kate J Korman , daughter of the late Harvey Korman, is the author of “First You Laugh: A Memoir of a Comedian’s Daughter.”
Lucretia Grindle has published six novels, most recently “The Villa Triste” and “The Lost Daughter.”
