In a bit of a departure from other evening events, this one will be not just an author speaking about her work, but also a kind of workshop for attendees interested in creative writing. Writer Linda Lappin will interact with the audience members and discuss -- and do--creative writing, based on her creative-writing book The Soul of Place. Those who attend need not have a creative project; it promises to be an interesting evening just to  look at the creative process of others.
