TONASKET – Nine brave writers stepped up to breathe life into words on paper before a crowd of about 30 people at the Community Cultural Center in Tonasket Feb. 15.
In addition to reading some of his own work, group member Curtiss Howard had emcee duties that evening.
The CCC also had a dinner attendees could purchase to support the building fund.
The readers, including Howard, his wife Suzanne Daily Howard, Karen McGuire, Margaret Lange, Dawna Nagye and Tom Keller, read poems, monologues and short stories, themes crossing oceans and jungles, summer and winter. Many of the pieces came back to life in the Okanogan Valley, from mountains to the elusive snow snake.
