The city of Dover, and the greater Seacoast area have a great number of talented writers. Writing is often a solitary activity, and the relationship between author and reader is often rather one-way and passive, with the author writing, and the reader reading.
Page Turner is an event taking place in Dover on Saturday, June 23, from 2 – 6 PM at The Art Center in Dover. This event will change the dynamic between writer and author – as some sixteen of the Seacoast’s well-known authors gather together for an afternoon of discussion, book signings, readings, and a chance for readers and writers to interact with each other. There will also be a raffle of a number of poster-size book covers.
Following this event Shane Morin will be offer a writing workshop from 6 – 7 PM. Shane is an active poet and community organizer in the Seacoast Area. Writing workshops are perfect opportunities for writers of any level to share experiences, and to get advice from those who have already trod the roads others see only on maps.
A list of authors taking part in Page Turner includes: David Random , Deirdre Hebert, James Oshman, Jane Fraser, Jeff Deck, Katherine Silva, KD Mason, KM Doherty, Maggie van Galen, Marilynn Carter, Michele Lowry, Nancy Schaefer, Olga Morrill, Shelby June, Steve Carter, and Suzi Konopka.
