Our sister group, the Brandywine Valley Writers Group, hosts SHORT READINGS BY LOCAL AUTHORS, with several group authors reading from their work.

JOHN DIXON is the author of Phoenix Island, just released from Simon & Schuster's Gallery imprint. The novel was adapted into the new CBS Show Intelligence.

CLAIRE MULLIGAN is an award-winning Canadian author. Her first novel, The Reckoning of Boston Jim, was nominated for Canada's Geller Prize.

    The readings were great, nice variety. It was a lot of fun and a good turnout, ran into several non-writer friends. The bookstore is lovely and we still got home in time to see Intelligence!

    I said yes, but I'm really a maybe. Totally depends on what time I get out of work and what the roads are like since it's about an hour's drive for me.

      Since I'm still at my office at 6:54 and it takes an hour to get there, I guess I'm definitely a no. Good luck to all the speakers. I know those in attendance will enjoy it greatly. Wish I could be there.
