Revamping the Classics

Writer's Workshop
Wed, Jun 1, 2022
7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Who doesn't love a classic? While classics are beloved, they also serve as inspiration for authors as there have been countless adaptations written and published throughout the years.

For readers, adaptations allow us to see ourselves included in our favorite stories. As we celebrate Pride month, join author Jeanette Watts for a reading and discussion centered on her book, A Woman's Persuasion, a retelling of Jane Austen's Persuasion.

About the presenter:   Jeanette Watts has written historical fiction, modern satires, television commercials, one-act melodramas, Old Western saloon shows, dance textbooks, and marketing newspapers. She has also written unproduced television and movie scripts and unpublished erotica. Her current projects include a collection of essays for Kindle Vella called The Curmudgeon's Diary, and her first children's book. You could say she just likes words.

Registration is encouraged.
