The 10th writer-in-residence program wraps up with a public presentation from this year’s author, Sonya Lalli along with special guests on Dec. 1 in the Richmond Cultural Centre Performance Hall (7700 Minoru Gate).
The free in-person program takes place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and is chance to connect with Lalli and other literary artists. To reserve a spot, email firstname.lastname@example.org. As seating is limited, advance registration is required to attend in person.
Since this year’s writer-in-residence program launched in late September, local emerging writers have had the opportunity to participate in the three-part Breaking Down Barriers workshop series, a public reading and Q&A session and there is still time to register for the upcoming Writers’ Circle on Saturday (Nov. 27).
The 2021 writer-in-residence program is produced by a partnership of the City of Richmond’s Arts Services, Minoru Seniors Society and Richmond Public Library Brighouse Branch.
