What a wonderful weekend we’ve had! Sunday had some gorgeous weather, and Saturday held our excellent All-Day Writers Workshop, which had a wonderful response. Students and instructors, alike had a wonderful, educational time. And we’re still watching out for our writers this month at 65 James Street for the NaNoWriMo “Come Write In” program. Check out our hours and details on our Facebook page.
Of course, we have a FULL CALENDAR LISTING on our events page! Here’s just a brief taste of the many more things you can expect from ABSW in the next few weeks!
THIS WEEK! November 15, Saturday, 2-4PM: G. Michael Dobbs
- Michael Dobbs of Springfield, MA has spoken with hundreds of celebrities from television to music to theatre, and he’s bringing that experience to everyone with his latest book Fifteen Minutes With: Forty Years of Interviews. Dobbs will discuss the work and experience that went into this latest book, which includes information on how to conduct an effective interview in a short time—as well as giving readers a taste of what it’s like to speak with people like Vincent Price, Maureen O’Hara, Rick Moranis, George Romero, Anne Rice, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Don McLean, Rachel Maddow, Joan Rivers, and many, many more.
He has written two other books, Escape! How Animation Went Mainstream in the 1990s and Springfield: A Postcard History. He joined Reminder Publications Inc. as the editor of the Chicopee Herald in 1999 and is now the managing editor of the company’s five publications, which reach about 122,000 readers in western Massachusetts.
