All Coronado writers are invited to read from their work, published and unpublished, poets, novelists, essayists, playwrights, journalists, storytellers and others who enjoy putting words to paper or into a computer drive. Read for neighbors, family and friends. Enjoy hearing what others in our community are writing. From past gatherings, we know our writers are fabulous and the camaraderie at this type of event is greatly enjoyed!

There will be adequate seating, (chairs as well as benches), a sound system, a schedule (flexible) and possible musical interludes to ensure the event is enjoyable for all.

A Great Day to Celebrate Your Art with family, friends and neighbors! The Coronado Art Walk Shuttle will bring visitors from the Ferry Landing to the Library for this event, the Sara Rowe Exhibit and Tours of the Library Art Collection. The Library Coffee Cart is open, the Senior Center Hot Dog & Root Beer Float Sale is on and we plan to have local solo/small ensemble musicians playing on the lawn.
