Russell Leonard writing group…presents selections of work, from new-age novels to prose poetry and everything in between. Readings will be shared by writers Jacqui Rossi, Maria Pedone, Christina Parrella, Taylor Tobin, Jessica Sarles-Dinsick, and Sonya Patel on January 25th from 5:30-6:30pm.
Anticipate excerpts from:
- Blank Generation, a dramedy set in 1970s New York about a group of artists living in the East Village
- Learn to Love Your Ground, a novel about a New Yorker who takes flight to London to escape memories of her deceased husband and start fresh, but is relentlessly pursued by an attractive Scotsman
- An unnamed novel about a newbie Rolling Stones writer who soon sees herself on a downward, drug-induced spiral; the protagonist is a plane-crash survivalist whose story is weaved through the present and flashbacks to her wild past
- A short story on a woman’s reflection on her past, present, and future, which may, only to the reader, be perceived as grim
- Poetry of choice
Come listen to these works while enjoying light snacks and wine in a Williamsburg living room (from Manhattan take the L to Bedford Ave and walk to the intersection of Grand St. and Driggs Ave.). Contact for details.
