Posted: March 7, 2013 Local Historian Answers Questions
"Writers Read: Franks for Asking" will be held at the L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library in Eau Claire on Tuesday evening, March 12. The program will feature Frank Smoot, who writes and edits the history column "Thanks for Asking" in the local culture magazine "Volume One."
Smoot will read from his works that respond to questions he's been asked as well as original works that address questions yet to be asked about local historical places and events.
The free program begins at 7 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
"Writers Read" is a monthly library presentation organized by Eau Claire's Poet Laureate, Bruce Taylor. Each reading features original poetry and prose written by writers living and working in the Chippewa Valley.
Next month's session, scheduled for April 9, will be an open reading to which area residents may bring their original material to read. The May 14 event, "Our Long Goodbye," will feature readings by local author Patti See from her award-winning blog about her family's experience with Alzheimer's.
