Lancaster Christian Writers meets Saturday, April 16th

Dear Lancaster Christian Writers:
While in Israel these last couple weeks (a wonderful experience!), we received news that it was actually snowing back home in PA. So what a delightful surprise to return to spring weather, blossoming trees, and budding flowers. Perfect weather to get out of the house! So I hope you will join us this coming Saturday, April 16th, at Lancaster Evangelical Free Church, 419 Pierson Rd, Lititz, PA, 17543, from 9:30AM-12 noon. We are delighted to welcome as our guests for that date the owners of Aaron's Bookstore in downtown Lititz, Todd and Sam Dickenson. Todd will be sharing with us the benefits a community bookstore can offer you as a local writer. He shares the following: "Aaron's Books in Lititz is Lancaster County's independent general interest bookstore, offering new and quality used books, as well as e-books. Owners Todd and Sam Dickinson and their son Aaron (age 8) – for whom the store is named – are committed to community involvement. Todd will offer the bookstore owner's perspective on bookselling and discuss ways authors and locally-owned, independent bookstores can work together to promote the author's work, as well as the love of reading." Check out more about their facilities and many community and author events at: http://www.aaronsbooksonline.com/ 
We will also be holding our regular peer critique session, SO put to use all those tips you picked up at this year's Super Saturday conference and bring along that piece to critique. Remember the guidelines: no more than 1500 words and ten copies for group critique.
Looking forward to seeing you there.

President, Lancaster Christian Writers
