Waterline Writers is wrapping up the season with a great lineup, featuring Corey Dillard with superhero spoken word skills to take on the dual identities he can't escape -- leaping obstacles, skirting quicksand, and dodging the landmines of racial identity in America with a courage, vulnerability and dexterity that few have managed. Christopher Kuhl's poetry gently underscores the roles of locale, memory and gender identity in the importance of one's sense of place. Donna Pucciani returns from a season abroad in time to share from her seventh collection, EDGES, poetry about those who've been important in shaping her life. David Berner returns with a new memoir, October Song, in which he almost misses his chance to fulfill the singer-songwriter aspect of his identity for the second time. And, intriguingly, Dan Klefstad's new novel Shepherd and the Professor is, according to its narrator, "not a story about anything, really, other than how one person can derail another’s life without trying, but who can help put it back on track by trying just a little."

Waterline Writers Poetry Reading is a monthly event featuring area writers. If you love the written word, this is the event for you! Each event is a unique opportunity to hear diverse, talented writers reading original published and not-yet-published work. If you are a writer, it’s a place to share your very best with an enthusiastic audience. Admission is $5 / $3 for students! Writers can join the 5-minute-limit Open Mic at 8:30, or find submission FAQ's at Events are 3rd Sundays at 7 pm, September to May, in the art gallery at Water Street Studios. For more information, contact Kevin Moriarity at 630.777.6474 or or visit their web site.
