  • Words Like Love and Light: LoLa 38 Book Release

    November 7, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
    Dornsife Center for Neighborhood Partnerships, 3509 Spring Garden St, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA

    Join us to celebrate the release of Words like Love and Light: LoLa 38 Art + Writing, an anthology of collected writing resulting from a collaboration between LoLa 38 and Writers Room. The launch will be held November 7, 2017 at the Dornsife Center (3509 Spring Garden) from 4:30-6:00 PM. The event is free and open to all, with community dinner to follow.

    Members of the Writers Room community and participants in workshops throughout the summer and fall along the Lancaster Avenue corridor have loaned us their eyes, their words, their histories, and their imaginings to offer up snapshots of this changing neighborhood in the midst of a major shift—and new development.

    We will be celebrating the release of the book with refreshments and an impromptu reading of select pieces, followed by a discussion led by our very own Rachel Wenrick and Valerie Fox.
