No, that’s not a pirate tale, but a reading series in Petersburg, Virginia, just down the road from Richmond.Â The Appomattox Regional Governor’s School has an outstanding Literary Arts program.Â It’s been my privilege to work with them and get to know the students and faculty.Â The students have teamed up with a local bookstore, Minerva’s, to host a reading series.Â To quote from the Minerva website:
Mark your calendar now for the next one, February 19 from 5-6:30 pm. The readings feature some of the area’s most talented young writers and the sponsoring ARGS Writers Forum plans to open these to public participation. Readings are held the third Thursday of each month from 5-6:30 pm. For more information, contact Christina Trimarco.
I know what you’re thinking.Â Student readings?Â High School Student Readings?Â Danvers has lost his mind!Â Well, you probably already thought that, but trust me on this.Â These guys are good. Â Check them out.Â You’ll be glad you did.
