Hendersonville Open Mic Welcomes Guest

Patricia Vestal hosted the monthly Open Mic at the library in Hendersonville recently.

They had a special guest this month. Lisa Lopez Snyder, the current Writer-in-Residence at the Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site in Flat Rock, read from her first novel, which she is finalizing.  

Pat thanks OM supporters Ken Fitch and Lana Hendershott who had met Snyder at a reception and told her about the event. Accompanying her, and providing some information on their program was a Ranger who works with the program. She is also a writer who is eager to attend and read at future OM events.

Despite the smaller number of readers this month, the material read was excellent, some of it hilarious, some quite powerful, as is usually the case with this diverse group.

Announcements were made about the upcoming Bookfest at Blue Ridge Community College this week-end, April 24 and 25.  

The next Open Mic reading will be held at the library May 18.  To receive the monthly announcement for reader registration,  email  Notices go out about a week prior to the reading which is the third Monday of each month.
