The Nittany Valley Writers Network will meet at 6:30 pm on September 10 in the Schlow Library Community Room in State College. Author and singer-songwriter Ken Baxter will share his process for writing prose and lyrics from his upcoming memoir, The Philosophy of Arson, and its companion album, which recounts the unexpected detour his life took following the loss of his younger son, Alex, to suicide. The Nittany Valley Writers’ Network is a sharing, supportive, inspiring community linking local writers of all genres and levels of experience: expert and novice, published and hopeful. All writers are welcome. For more information contact Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org.
