  • Virginia Hamilton book and award— Curating legacy of American writer

    virginia hamilton manuscripts office

    For many years after her death in 2002, the glass door to Virginia Hamilton’s writing office remained closed. Every day Arnold Adoff, her husband and writing partner, passed the office at their home in Yellow Springs, but he didn’t want to open it. Then in 2007 fellow children’s book writer Kacy Cook helped crack the vault, and out poured 35 years of research, notes, speeches and manuscripts that formed the gritty trail of an American intellectual and her life as mother, wife and prolific writer.

  • New book profiles Walter Anderson

    Local author Joan Horn will read from her recently published work, ‘Playing on All the Keys: The Life of Walter F. Anderson’ on Monday, Sept. 8, at 7:30 p.m. at Curves of Yellow Springs, 506 High St., and on Saturday, Oct. 18, at 5 p.m. at Epic Book Shop, 118 Dayton St.

    Writers employ a wide variety of techniques to help them stay on task, such as scheduling a set time each day for writing or writing about writer’s block. For first-time author Joan Horn, the pressure to work on her book came from a technique not typically found in a writer’s guide.

  • Three authors write of love, youth and spirits

    Writing in different genres, three generations of local writers Jaime Adoff, Joanne Caputo and Chuck Colbert have published books this year. Caputo will read from her book on Margaret Garner on Saturday, Aug. 16, 6 p.m., at Epic Book Shop.

    Three authors, three books, three very different journeys on the road to getting published. Chuck Colbert, Jaime Adoff, and Joanne Caputo talked about their recently published works and what they hope to bring to their readers.
