Music, Readings, and WAG’s 2017 Book Project

December 10, 2017, 2:30 PM - 4:30 PM

A crowd turned out on a brisk Sunday afternoon to enjoy music, readings by WAG members, and food and drink at Sal’s Place, a sports bar and restaurant in Northwest Gainesville.

Arthur Crummer, Ken Booth, and Janet Barrett Suggs provided the music, and about a dozen WAG members read essays or selections in poetry, fiction, or memoir.

A big thanks to Wendy Thornton for coordinating the event, to Ken Booth for setting up the sound equipment, and to Sal’s Place for providing the venue.

Donated books

We are also grateful to Roz Miller who organized WAG’s Holiday Children’s Book Project. Many of those attending the Sal’s Place event donated books or cash.

Roz (WAG), and Kristen (Peaceful Paths)

On December 18, all donations were delivered to Peaceful Paths, a non-profit organization that helps children caught in the middle of stressful domestic-violence situations. Peaceful Paths provides a safe place for women and their children, away from their abusers.
