Painting a Story with Words

by: 
Bethany

Can writing really be compared to painting? You'd be surprised.

Novelist Elizabeth Wrenn, author of Around the Next Corner, will illustrate how writers make a myriad of choices on every page, and why. From the detail work of a stippling brush (word choice), to the broader strokes of large brushes (plot, character, dialogue, setting), to the frame surrounding it all (beginning, middle, end), writers must use all the tools in their kit.

This hands-on workshop, presented by 40 West Arts and the Lakewood Library, will share practical tips and techniques for more effective writing.

1 p.m. Sunday, June 9
40 West Arts
1560 Teller St.

HHhH by Laurent Binet 

A New York Times notable book for 2012, HHhH is a fast paced, thrilling and historically accurate novelization of the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich.  Known as "The Butcher of Prague," Heydrich was feared for his cruelty (he helped mastermind the final solution) which, combined with his Aryan features made him a rising star in Hitler's cabinet.  Many historians believe he would have eventually succeeded Hitler as Führer.  HHhH also tells the story of the Czech and Slovak fighters who trained for and successfully completed the mission in May 1942.  These two stories take turns amongst the author's personal musings about the art of writing historical fiction.  The short but meaty chapters keep the reader entertained and eager for each successive page.
