Whitefish Library’s writer series continues

| March 27, 2024 12:00 AM

The Winter Writers Series continues at Whitefish Community Library with two workshops.  

First up is “Montana Women Writers Workshop,” which focuses on historic Montana writers and asks the question: Who are the remarkable women in your past?

Meet Missoula writer Caroline Patterson in the Whitefish Library’s community room on Thursday, March 28 at 6 p.m. Patterson has several published novels to her credit and was Director of the Missoula Writing Collaborative.

“Who? What? Why? A Writing Workshop for Teens” features young adult novelist and Whitefish resident Jess E. Owen. Tailored to teens 13 and older, Owen takes attendees through the writing process from plots and characters to what to do when you get “stuck.” 

Owen is past president of Authors of the Flathead, and her latest novel is “Don’t Ask if I’m Okay” published by Page Street Press. Owen will speak at the library on Friday, April 5 at 4:30 p.m. 

The final program in the Winter Writers Series will be a highly anticipated visit from Montana’s Poet Laureate Chris La Tray. La Tray is already known to students in the area through school visits he’s been making since becoming Poet Laureate.

La Tray will be at the Whitefish Library on April 12. The evening starts at 6 p.m. 

All Winter Writers Series programs are free and open to the public. No registration is necessary. Programs are sponsored by Humanities Montana and the Whitefish Library Association.
