Writers’ Mill @ Cedar Mill Library
Jul 21 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Writers' Mill @ Cedar Mill Library | Portland | Oregon | United States

Love cats, write mysteries.

The Writer’s Mill welcomes author Mollie Hunt as guest speaker in July. Mollie describes herself as “the crazy cat lady, animal shelter volunteer, Trekkie, and mystery writer. I live in the rainy Pacific Northwest and will watch any TV show or movie filmed here. Even though I am of a goodly age (sixty-something) I go to Star Trek conventions in costume and am not afraid to be by myself. I enjoy my life in the cat lane.” Mollie will discuss how to write, publish, and market your own mystery.

Whether you’re hoping for publication, planning to self-publish, or writing just for fun, join us on the third Sunday of each month for this hands-on inspiring gathering of people who love to write. Newcomers welcome! The group is designed for adults and teens ages 16+ and meets in the Library’s second floor Lewis & Clark community room.

For more information, contact group facilitator Sheila Deeth at sheilad@portlandwritersmill.oft

Teen Book Review: Girl in the Blue Coat

Amsterdam, 1943. Hanneke spends her days finding and delivering sought-after black market goods to paying customers, nights hiding the true nature of her work from her concerned parents, and every waking moment mourning her boyfriend, who was killed on the Dutch front lines when the German army invaded.
