countdown time

It’s countdown time – just two days to go before our book reading & release event on Thursday evening, Oct. 3rd in Burlington, Vt.

Eight formerly incarcerated women (coming from all corners of the state) will join us on stage to read their poetry and prose from Hear Me, See Me: Incarcerated Women Write.

We’ll also have a few incarcerated women from the work-release unit at Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility in attendance.

Sarah has tabulated the RSVPs, and it looks like we’ll have an audience of more than 225, including 50 family members connected to the women writers!  These new authors will be on hand after the reading portion of the evening to autograph books for guests.

This week, bestselling author Chris Bohjalian, who writes a regular Sunday column entitled Idyll Banter for the Burlington Free Press, penned a lovely validating essay about Hear Me, See Me. We are eternally grateful for his help in spreading the word.

Tomorrow Sarah debuts live on Vermont Public Radio’s noontime program Vermont Edition to talk about the book and read a few selections.  Break a leg, dear one!

We’ll post pictures after the reading event; you can still order your copy here. Huge thanks for your ongoing support!

Oh, and post an Amazon review if you’ve already purchased the book; we have two so far and welcome more.

    The Night went beautifully, I must thank both Marybeth and Sarah for their diligence and hard work in making this happen. You are my heroes. Let me know if I can do anything in the future to help the program both inside and outside. Love Michele 🙂
