Attended Somerville Writers and Readers Winter Market

My spouse, Ariel Cohen, and I attended the Somerville Writers and Readers Winter Market at the Somerville Library on Saturday, March 11, 2023. It was billed as serving up “locally sourced, organically grown literature:”

“Here’s your chance to meet several local Somerville authors, hear readings from their work, discover some fantastic literature, talk with writers and readers about book groups, writing groups and more. Come browse, borrow, or buy books by your neighbors and friends! Refreshments will be served.”

Denise Provost (of Bagel Bards fame) moderated the event, which also featured Lloyd Schwartz, Pulitzer Prize winner and poet laureate of Somerville.  (Notice I spelled “Pulitzer” correctly? ;-))

Other readers included:

  • Dave Ortega, graphic novelist
  • Denise Provost, poet
  • Lesley Bannatyne, short story author
  • Kevin M. McIntosh, novelist

As cliché as it sounds, a good time was had by all!
