This month, the Provincetown Public Library continues its collaborative effort with the Writers Voice Provincetown. Continuing to further its mission of becoming a center for cultural storytelling in our community, the Library is working with the founding members of the Writer’s Voice Café to produce a series of Open Mic events and Workshops in 2017. Founded by Dian Hamilton with Hilde Oleson joining shortly thereafter, The Writer’s Voice Café provides writers of all media opportunities to share their work and to connect with others in the community for support and inspiration.
On Wednesday, April 12 the Writers Voice Café will hold their monthly Café honoring Sexual Awareness Month. Chris Morin with others will speak about Independence House, the only comprehensive community-based organization on Cape Cod providing free and confidential specialized services and widespread programs for adults, teens and children (ages 6 and up) who are survivors of, or affected by domestic and sexual violence. A Speak Out: Domestic and Sexual Violence will follow with the theme of sexual assault. We must give “sexual assault” language a voice, as silence keeps it very much alive. All those who feel safe to tell their story are welcome.
The April Writer’s Voice Café event at the Provincetown Public Library will be held in the Marc Jacobs Reading Room on Wednesday, April 12 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Coffee, tea, and snacks will be served. Everyone is welcome!
