Saturday, May 1

CCAI and the Carson City Library are proud to announce "Books & Writers," a new collaborative program highlighting literary arts. The program launches with a workshop and reading by the New York Times bestselling author and Carson City resident Ellen Hopkins.

Ms. Hopkins, 2010 Nevada Governor's Arts Award recipient, is the author of Crank, Burned, Impulse, Glass, Identical, Tricks and Fallout

Blogger SimeyC writes about Crank: "This is one of the most powerful and emotive books I have ever read. You don’t quite feel fulfilled after it, but this is OK – it’s written in a way to make you question, to make you realize things aren’t black and white, and it is so compelling that it will draw you in again and again – I’ve read it several times, and I still find something new to think about, something else that really strikes a chord in my heart and soul."

The events are free. The public is cordially invited! Seating is limited; the doors will open a half hour early.

Save the dates!
Additional Books & Writers events include:

*** a reading on Tuesday, May 4 [6:30–7:30pm], and a workshop on Thursday, May 13, [3:30–4:30pm] by WNC professor Ursula Carlson, author of Trails of Historic New Mexico: Routes Used By Indian, Spanish, and American Travelers Through 1886.

*** a writing workshop on Tuesday, May 11 [3:30– 4:30pm], and a reading on Saturday, May 15 [1–2pm] by Carson City native Heidi Ayarbe, author of Freeze Frame and Compromised.
