Since last autumn, I have been a regular participant at a writers’ open mic at the Glencoe Public Library. This monthly event, which usually takes place on Wednesday evenings beginning at 7:00 pm, was organized by Bob Boone, my friend and mentor in writing and teaching. Writers, young and old, published and unpublished, read their stories and poems, in what is always an attentive and supportive audience. Stop by sometime, to read, or just to listen. I’m sure that you will enjoy it.
