Local Writers Hold Book Signing to Support Literacy

Help Saturday Writers encourage kids to write. Attend the reception and book signing to raise money for our annual young writers' contest.

The Saturday Writers Chapter of the Missouri Writers’ Guild will hold a reception and book signing featuring local contributors to the Cuivre River Anthology (Volume II). The event, which will be held September 8 from noon until 3 p.m., is being hosted by Jamie Duly, owner of Dahlia’s Distinctive Designs. The book signing will be held at Dahlia’s, which is located at 525 S. Main Street in St. Charles.

The Cuivre River Anthology is a collection of stories, poems, and essays written by award-winning writers from as nearby as St. Charles to as far away as the United Kingdom. Local contributors participating in the event are: Amy Harke-Moore, Joy Wooderson, Jerry Swingle, Diana Davis, Doyle Suit, Louella Turner, Candace Carrabus Rice, Dianna Graveman, Julie Failla Earhart, Tricia Sanders, and Donna Duly Volkenannt.

Sales of the anthology help fund the Saturday Writers’ annual children’s and teens’ writing contests and awards, which are presented each December. For more information call 636-379-9362 or visit the Saturday Writers web site www.saturdaywriters.org.
