Exploring the Art of Fiction with Jennifer Mills Kerr
The Peace Dale Library will present a monthly series of 6 2-hour workshops (on the 3rd Saturday of each month through July) with Jennifer Mills Kerr that explore aspects of fiction through reading, writing, and discussion. Through writing exercises and reviewing different novelists' work, participants will gain greater knowledge about literature, writing, and the creative process.
Part 1, February 16: Seduced into story: Openings.
All of us peruse the first few pages of books to see if we want to read more. But what makes a good opening? We'll read and discuss the beginning pages of a few novels, explore varying techniques for pulling readers in, and free-write using what we've learned. Bring your own writing materials.
Free of charge but seating is limited and registration recommended. Call 401-789-1555 xt 110 to sign up.

More About Peace Dale Library
Though the Peace Dale Library Association was founded in 1853, it was not located in the idyllic location it resides in now until 1891, a gift in memory of Rowland Hazard. The landmark building sits high above Kingstown Road, but don't let its imposing visage fool you. Inside are thousands of square feet to roam and over 35,000 items to browse within the surprisingly modern facility. The circulation and information centers are newly-renovated and feature a self-checkout option at the reference desk. Enjoy some quiet time in the elegant front reading rooms, or surf the Web at their computer center.
