Byrd of Bethel’s Books Hosts November Episodes From Write America on Zoom

Write America, the weekly series of virtual authors now on Zoom, features nationally acclaimed award-winning authors, as well as new and emerging artists, in readings and conversations about how books and art could fill the deep divisions of our country. Now in its 2nd year, the series, reaching a devoted and growing audience worldwide, is conceived and curated by author Roger Rosenblatt with online host, Alice Hutchinson, owner of Bethel’s Byrd’s Books, streaming every week and is free to the public.
