About the Event

Author Ken Rivard joins Wordstorm to kick off our Fall 2022 season!

Ken has recently released canalWatch, a collection of flash fiction which centers around observations and stories about a canal that lives only in Ken's (and our imaginations)!  

Will there be passion, crime, pathos, or just everyday 'normal' along the banks of the canal? Ken will  introduce you to characters you will love and others you'll be unable to forget (even though you might want to!)

Our open mic will cap off the evening.  Sign-up for your spot by emailing: wordstormsociety@gmail.com
