What is happening in The Room?

Writers, illustrators, editors and lovers of literature are welcome to hop on over Monday,June 18th, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm to the Trustees Room on the 2nd floor of Lucius Beebe Memorial Library located at 345 Main Street, Wakefield MA. 

We invite you to connect, get motivated and be inspired by other local writers and illustrators while you enjoy coffee, tea and something sweet. There is something indispensable about meeting people with a shared passion in person.

This is a casual, social event open to writers and illustrators at all levels and all genres to meet each other over a cup of tea or coffee and some sweet treats. Attendees are encouraged—but not required—to bring a poem, short piece of writing, or illustration(s) to share with the group. ​If you have published a book please feel welcome to bring it and introduce it to the group. 

This Meet & Greet is sponsored by The Room to Write and located in space being generously provided by the Lucius Beebe Memorial Library with thanks to local artist Kari Percival for the accompanying image. Contact Colleen Getty at or (781) 621-8056 with questions or to let us know you will attend.
