Goodall Library will be hosting Springvale resident Marc Widershien as he reads from his recently published book Maine, a Journeyman’s Book — an organic memoir of his experiences in Maine told in verse.
Joseph Campbell, a great writer of things spiritual, has said: Follow your bliss. Find where it is and don’t be afraid to follow it. This has been the essence of Widershien’s experience here in Maine.
Marc received his literary and musical training in New York and Boston. His other published books are Middle Journeys, The Life of All Worlds, and Poems of Survival. He has made numerous appearances in journals as a poet, essayist, and book reviewer.

Local author Marc Widershien will lead a six-week writing workshop at Goodall Library, with emphasis (but not exclusively) on memoirs, biography, and autobiography. The group is open to all those who wish to acquire new writing skills or improve on the ones they already have.
The curriculum includes “free-writing” (or “stream-of-consciousness”), remembered events, memory books, group discussions, self-editing, exercises on sensory detail, and handouts with examples of noted writers and artists. The objective is the enjoyment of language and its awesome gifts.
Registration is required. FMI call Marc Widershien at 636-0595.

This event is held in conjunction with our annual pre-holiday food drive. The donations will go to the York County Food Pantry.
