The Barre Writers for Recovery group had a fantastic reading Wednesday night at Studio Place Arts in Barre. We presented work by 13 readers in all, with most reading in person. We had a packed house, and the responses from the audience were just incredible. People commented on the quality of the writing, the emotion it contained, and the courage shown by the readers, who shared some extremely personal work. Special guests included Writers for Recovery Executive Director Bess O'Brien and several folks from the Burlington Writers for Recovery Group, who came all the way to Burlington to support their fellow writers. Deb and I are so pleased at the commitment and hard work of the members of the Barre group. Thanks to everyone for a great night, and for Sue Higby of Studio Place Arts for hosting!
