Provincetown, MA — The Provincetown Book Festival will kick off at 9:00 a.m. Saturday, September 14, with a curated reading by local authors, judged by prominent New York literary agent Adam Chromy. The writers chosen by Chromy are John Bonnani, Alexandra Marshall, Steven Bruce Myerson, Judith Newcomb Stiles, Jan Worthington, and Beth Ruggiero York. The six writers will be reading poetry, fiction, and non-fiction, some of it published, some of it from works in progress.
For this event, dubbed “Reading Local,” Mr. Chromy reviewed numerous submissions from local Provincetown and Cape Cod writers. What emerged was a thematic program that gives a strong picture of life on the outer Cape. The reading is free and open to the public. For more information, go to provincetownbookfestival.org.
