Happy 30th Anniversary, Writers & Books!!!

Writers & Books

The final Genesee Reading Series of the Writers & Books 30th Anniversary Year features our very own Joe Flaherty and his daughter, Caedra Scott-Flaherty.  You do not want to miss this opportunity to hear Joe and Caedra read from their own work.  Come share with us this very fitting end to the wonderful 2011 Genesee Reading Series season!

The Genesee Reading Series, with impresario Wanda Schubmehl, continues to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Writers & Books with a program featuring Joe Flaherty and Caedra Scott-Flaherty.

The Genesee Reading Series will be held at Writers & Books, located at 740 University Avenue, Rochester, NY 14607, on Tuesday, December 13, 2011, at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $3 for members and $6 for the general public.

Joe FlahertyJoe Flaherty, the Executive/Artistic Director of Writers & Books, received his B.A. in English from Penn State University and his MFA from the University of Buffalo. He founded Writers & Books in 1981 out of the belief that writing, and the appreciation of literature, needed to be promoted as life-long activities to the widest possible audience. He has served as a speaker, arts panelist and consultant throughout the country and has been honored in Rochester with a number of major awards, including The Arts Person of the Year from the Rochester Chamber of Commerce.
