NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, and it’s an annual creative writing project. Participants are challenged to write 50,000 words during the month of November. The goal of NaNoWriMo is to encourage creativity, get people writing and keep them motivated throughout the process.
The Hudson Library is registered as a Come Write In location; let us be your host as you work on your novel this November. Join us on Wednesdays: November 1: 3:00-6:00 pm, November 15 and November 29: 4:00-7:00 pm upstairs in Room 219. Visit NaNoWriMo’s website (www.nanowrimo.org) to learn more.
Author Visit: Anthony Wedgeworth
Anthony Wedgeworth grew up with severe learning disabilities until he was diagnosed with dyslexia later in life. He coped by getting involved with sports, choir, art, dance & theater. After experiencing numerous successes in the business world, he picked up his pen and began his writing career as an author of epic fantasy adventures.
Anthony's books are based on his experiences playing Dungeons & Dragons, and his love for the Lord of the Rings, Dark Crystal, and Star Wars. He has created a realm with all new species, races, history and landscapes. Don't miss the chance to meet Anthony Wedgeworth on Friday November 10 from 3:15-5:00 pm and learn about his series!
