Writer’s Voice Café at the Provincetown Book Festival
Saturday, September 16
The Writers Voice Café, a Provincetown institution, presents a special Provincetown Book Festival event at the Provincetown Public Library. The Writer’s Voice in partnership with the Provincetown Public Library supports, inspires and celebrates writers of artistic works in all areas on Cape Cod. The monthly Writer’s Voice Café over the last 10 years has encouraged an open mic for works in progress as well as published works followed by the featured writers reading from their work as well as sharing their writing journey. They also hold six Writing Workshops a year. In addition, in 2017, The Writer’s Voice participated with other countries in our first World Storytelling Day which will become an annual event in Provincetown. They also hope to launch an annual Provincetown Writers Festival in 2019.
On Saturday, September 16 at 2:00 p.m., the Writer’s Voice Café presents distinguished writers Ann Hood and Michael Ruhlman in conversation, moderated by Dian Hamilton. These two writers, both with long careers publishing fiction and non-fiction, will discuss their writing process, and how their recent marriage (to each other) has affected it.
Ann Hood is the editor of Knitting Yarns: Writers on Knitting and the bestselling author of The Book That Matters Most, The Knitting Circle, The Red Thread, Comfort, and An Italian Wife, among other works. She is the recipient of two Pushcart Prizes, a Best American Spiritual Writing Award, a Best American Food Writing Award, a Best American Travel Writing Award, and the Paul Bowles Prize for Short Fiction. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island.
Michael Ruhlman is the author of more than twenty books, mostly about food and cooking, half with chefs, some non-food non-fiction books (wooden boats, the fascinating world of pediatric heart surgery), and containing a lot of opinions on the fundamental importance of food and cooking to our families, our communities, our world. Michael also makes smartphone apps and kitchen tools, appears on TV, engages in public speaking, and helps raise his family. His book GROCERY: ON BUYING AND SELLING FOOD IN AMERICA describes how these stores, like no other retail store we have, operate and what they mean.
This special Writer’s Voice Café event at the Provincetown Book Festival will be held in the Marc Jacobs Reading Room at the Library, on Saturday, September 16, at 2:00 p.m. Coffee, tea, and snacks will be served. Everyone is welcome! All programs at the Provincetown Book Festival are free and open to the public.
