Cheese, Wine, and Words
On Sunday, September 24, 3:00 to 4:30 in the afternoon, at the Church of Harmony on 7th and Virginia Streets, in beautiful and unique Silver City, those of us who believe in the importance of Southwestern writers and writing will gather to trade gossip and stories, to drink some good wine or fine coffee/tea, to nibble on some great cheese and to listen to some outstanding Silver City poets.
Help us make it very clear that the following three beliefs are critical to our lives and happiness:
1. A Silver City festival celebrating writing emits good vibes about our special town
2. A festival in which talented authors talk about their books and about writing sends out an essential message: GREAT WORDS MAKE GREAT CULTURE , and
3. A successful book festival (that is, the Southwest Festival of the Written Word) must cost nary a cent for entrance, so as to attract the inquisitive high school student, the retiree getting by and making do on Social Security, the busy working person who delights in quiet time that comes with reading and/or writing, and all of us who just love words.
Please join us and discover that there are lots of folks in Silver City and environs who appreciate words well put together. Join us to thank a handful of dedicated people who put together the Festival so that we can all welcome over 30 prose writers and poets and playwrights to downtown Silver City. Join us to make clear your support for SWFWW, for the ideals that it furthers, and for a community that appreciates good writing.
We’re suggesting a $20 contribution, but your presence is as important as the money. Give what you can. Please bring friends and those who think that the world will be a better place when there is better writing abounding.
So that we can determine the amount of delicacies we must order, please send an RSVP right now to tomdeplata1 [at] gmail [dot] com.
Thank you and we hope to see you at our event.
