There are two events coming up for Brothers in Pen. First, the Prison Arts Project has been featured in the BAN7 show at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and the Creative Writing class is participating in the event by having a reading on September 18. Some former members of the class who are now un-incarcerated will be there to read stories of those still inside, followed by time for Q&A. It’s very exciting to be part of this YBCA show, so please come out and listen! You will also be able to take a look at the visual exhibit if you haven’t seen it already.
Time: 6 – 7 p.m.
Location: Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, 701 Mission St., SF (Mission and Third St.)
Second, we now have a date for our Brothers in Pen Annual Public Reading! Please mark your calendars for Saturday, November 15, 11:30 a.m. -3:30 p.m. if you want to have the extraordinary opportunity of coming inside San Quentin to attend a reading of works by the Creative Writing class. Each member of the class will read a 5-minute piece and there will be time for Q&A. If you have ever attended one of these public readings, you know what an engaging, lively and unforgettable event this is. Please contact me at brothersinpen at yahoo dotcom if you want to attend.
And just a reminder that there is a new book in the Brothers in Pen series… collect them all!
