Day 61 of 84 Days of 84 Ribbons: Readers and Writers
Bozeman is a beautiful Montana town with friendly people, lots of readers and exciting writers! Today I attended a women’s book club meeting and listened to them discuss The Rosie Project. They spent time answering questions, adding their opinions and them planning their summer reads around a delicious Key lime pie and strawberries. The scene out the window, a range of mountains and a wide-open sky, made for a lovely two hours spent with women who love story and words.
In the evening I met with the Gypsy Rhythm Writers at the Bozeman Public Library, a new state-of-art facility along Seventh. It’s an incredible community resource both in the services it provides and the fact that it contained the writing group. Ingeord Van Zanten, the facilitator and the group members made me feel right at home. The group’s shared writings were amazing. We critiqued poetry, a variety of short fiction and nonfiction stories. Before I knew it, the two hours slid away. I’m hoping some of the writers will travel to the Seattle area so I can invite them to my critique group. In the meantime, I’m on their email list s I can stay connected. Thanks Gypsy Rhythm Writers!
