Here you will see the Glamorous Witch Mary, Doug as a Fort Pillow Guard, and John as Cowboy Bob, who was a character in his story.
Apologies to the others whose photos were of poor quality and did not show how wonderful the costumes were. Next year we must commission a professional photographer!
Each year members of our writers group dress in scary (or otherwise) costumes for Halloween, and we bring our spooky (or otherwise) stories to share with the group. It’s one of two nights in the year that we don’t critique. The other night is when we celebrate the birthday of Robert Burns with poetry.
This year the costumes and stories were extraordinary! Unfortunately, our photographer was not extraordinary (me) so some of the photos were too dark to post. But you get the idea. Here is Mary Bess – You guessed it: “Writer’s Block”!
Another fantastic SFB! I attended a dinner Fri. night hosted by John Seigenthaler and John Seigenthaler, Jr. and was able to talk with some wonderful authors, including Walter Mosley. Sat. morning WNBA sponsored a panel of four, including Ann Patchett. Sat. night was the reception for all participants, and I was so glad to see Gail and Les Kerr among the familiar faces. Sun. afternoon Doug and I had our session. Our big room was not full, but it was not empty! As always, we had a great audience who asked some good questions. Thanks to Whit Stokes for being the moderator. Here is one of the photos.
It’s that time again! We’re expecting glorious weather at the SFB, October 14-16, at Legislative Plaza in Nashville. Doug Jones and I have a session on Sunday at 1:30 in Room 12. (A Season of Darkness – the Marcia Trimble case) Please join us!
