Stories in the Round: Susan Gordon

April 24, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$15

Susan Gordon is a prose writer of both fiction and memoir.  She is also a poet, storyteller, and was a narrative therapist until her retirement in March. She is the winner of the Concrete Wolf Press chapbook competition and her long poem, There Is a Doe in the Winter Hayfield, was published in the fall of 2016.  Susan is currently at work on a novel set in the Cheat watershed in in the early 1900’s, a time when the West Virginia Alleghanies were clear cut of every standing tree. In this novel, she follows the lives of Liza and John Ingram, who live at the seep beginnings of Laurel Fork below Bayard Knob, who fight to keep their land from being lumbered out. This evening Susan will describe the history of the land, the people who have supported her work on this novel and read some excerpts from the novel itself.

Stories In The Round is a storytelling series at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Hagerstown, 13245 Cearfoss Pike, Hagerstown, MD generally the 4th Monday of the month.

$12 in advance, $15 at the door. Children 12 & older welcome when accompanied by a parent or group leader.
