At Hotel Sorrento

Local Voices presents a unique opportunity to eavesdrop on the works of SAL’s Writers in the Schools resident writers. These locally acclaimed novelists, poets, essayists and storytellers come together to read from their own works-in-progress, and inspire the same craft and performance skills they teach in the classroom.

This event is free to the public and will be held in the intimate Fireside Room in the Sorrento Hotel.

Featuring Aaron Counts, Alex Gallo-Brown, Corinne Manning, Jeanine Walker, Kathleen Flenniken, Michael Overa, Samar Abulhassan, Vicky Edmonds, and Jourdan Keith.
