About Words with Wine

Enjoy a glass of wine and some cheese while listening to a published author speak about their work and read an excerpt or two. Most authors will share some information about their writing process, how and why they came to write their featured prose or poetry and they may share some interesting or entertaining related trivia. This event series is designed to spotlight a blend of established and emerging authors.
