Kathleen McKinley Harris and Ray Hudson are two longtime friends who
have both published new books in 2018. Harris is a poet who celebrates the
pastoral Vermont of yesteryear. Earth Striders chronicles the evolution of a
young girl, whose love of horses and nature defines her life as she moves into
adulthood. Fear, love, tragedy and humor are interwoven in these living,
breathing poems that transcend time. In Ivory and Paper, Hudson’s
protagonist, Booker, a 13 year old from a Vermont farm enters the magical
world of the Aleutian Islands when he meets Anna, who is on a quest to return
an ancestral amulet. The spell-binding relic involves the new friends in a world
of myth and mystery.
All Writers are encouraged to share a brief piece of writing (5 min. max) at the Open Mic.
Come and enjoy this celebration of writing, book signings, conversation, and of course,
complimentary tea, coffee and sweets!
