Pen to paper writers series

The Carrabelle Branch of the Franklin County Public Libraries will be hosting an exciting writers’ series entitled, “Pen to Paper” from January through May 2023. Kicking off this exciting series, on Monday, January 9 at 2 pm, will be a five-author panel featuring Dawn Radford, Tiffany Jo Howell, D.J. Mays, Sidsel ‘Sid’ McOmie, and Anthony Lee Watkins. The Carrabelle Branch Library is located at 311 St. James Avenue, Carrabelle, FL. 

The authors and poets on this panel will discuss and share the works they have written and those they are working on now, followed by a question and answer session. This friendly and informal event will be a wonderful chance to meet and greet these local authors personally and is open to anyone interested in learning more about these writers or writing in general or those who just love reading. Refreshments will be served.
