Charie La Marr
At our well-attended June meeting, Tom Connair gave an interesting talk about using Scribner, complete with visual aids and a good handout. It was the first of what we hope will be many lectures. Members Alp Beck and Steven Van Patten are busy trying to set up a lot of new and interesting talks for upcoming months.
Our Summer Dark Reading Series has almost come to a close. Only one more evening of readings remains. Thanks to readers Rick Poldark, Teel James Glenn, Liz Crowens, Steven Van Patten, Carol Gyzander, Nancy Lambert, James Chambers, Patrick Freivald, and Marc Abbott for some great tales for a summer evening. Hildy Silverman, Oliver Baer, and Amy Grech closed out another summer in late July. This was our third season, and we sincerely thank the Oasis Community Gardens for having us.
Several of our members were at Thriller Fest in mid-July, and a great time was had by all.
With the summer more than halfway over, the chapter is already starting to get in gear for our big fall events: Genrepalooza and Comic-Con.
