BarkReaders: Christopher Locke

September 14 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

An open mic with featured North Country writers. Where can you discover new North Country writers and also share some work of your own? BarkReaders takes place every other month here at ACW in Saranac Lake, NY. Each reading will include an open mic and feature a North Country author presenting a recent book publication.

We’re bringing words and people together to foster writing community here in Saranac Lake and promote the work of writers from in and around the Adirondack park. Join us at 7 PM on the second Wednesday of January, March, May, July, September, and November.

September’s guest is Christopher Locke.
