NaNoLitMo with Faith Adiele 7pm Free
NaNoWriMo Presents NaNoLitMo!
The new, exciting, literary reading series for Wrimos and the wide world of local writers who dare to write greatly (or you know, who dare to write anything at all, which totally counts).
Our next event will be Faith Adiele! A popular speaker, teacher, editor, and mentor, Faith has been featured in O: The Oprah Magazine, Marie Claire Magazine’s 5 Women to Learn From, and The Huffington Post. She has appeared on NPR, on the Tavis Smiley show, in a national television ad for TIAA-CREF, in the pilot for a new reality show, and in a 2-page spread: “A Day in the Life of Faith Adiele” for Pink Magazine. She is the recipient of a UNESCO International Artists Bursary, the Millennium Award from Creative Nonfiction, and 17 artists’ residencies in Brazil, Canada, Italy and the USA.
Come listen to her read, then partake in a mini-writing challenge and enjoy what promises to be a raucous Q&A. Please join our hosts Shannon Monroe and Rachael Herron, on Thursday, April 11th, at 7.00 p.m., at the Octopus Literary Salon, which is located at 2101 Webster in Oakland. Support your fellow, local authors and help us celebrate NaNoWriMo all year long! Write on!
