Winter Fun this Thursday, Jan. 25th

This Thursday, January 25th, from 6:00-8:00 PM at The Lounge at duo Restaurant, we welcome GWP fiction author/english professor, T Stores. T and Dede will talk about traditional publishing vs. self publishing, finding an agent and getting organized! Should be a fascinating evening and T will read us a short story from her upcoming collection FROST HEAVES (May 2018 from Green Writers Press).
About the book
FrostHeavesCovMTKsmlIn southern Vermont, the annual freezing and thawing of the earth forces stones to the surface, breaking asphalt, disrupting civilized life. This is the setting for the stories in Frost Heaves, a physically harsh and rural place within a few hours’ drive of Boston and New York. It is a landscape where retreat, even escape, to a quaint and bucolic lifestyle is regularly upset by reminders that a human is, in the end, another part of the natural world and a part of a larger social organism. In this collection, an eclectic mix of characters interact, negotiate community, and encounter the natural world—bears, otters, moose, insects—in confrontations with the reality of their own individual strengths and weaknesses, the welling up of hard truths in the seasons of each life.
