Letter from the Gloucester Writers Center:
Less then four months ago our friend Paul Sawyer urged us to try one
more time to raise funds to purchase Vincent Ferrini’s home. Today
Paul is gone but he left us with a dream turned reality.
Thank you brother Paul.
We are delighted to announce that next month the Gloucester Writers
Center will be the official owner and resident of 126 East Main
Street! Come celebrate this historic occasion, meet our inaugural
Writer-in-Residence, Sandy Tolan, and hear him read from his
intriguing work-in-progress, which he’s been working on while in
residence at the Center.
Please join us to hear Sandy read from and talk about his work at
7:30 pm on Thursday, July 29, 2010. The event will be held across
the street from the Center at the Harbor Room. Dessert will be
served. We look forward to celebrating with you!
