August Meeting: Playwriting: Writing for the Stage

Novels are not the only form of storytelling! Earlier this year we discussed turning your novel into a screen play with Nancy Pickard, whose book Scent of Rain and Lightning has recently been made into a movie.
In August, we will learn about playwriting with local playwright Christie Kennard, who has had several scripts produced and staged.

Join us August 5, at 11 a.m. at Johnson County Library’s Central Resource Library, 9875 West 87th Street, Overland Park, Kansas. This meeting is free and open to the public! NOTE: This is a different location from our usual meeting spot at the Antioch Branch.

Our speakers on December 3 are coming to us from Flatland KC, which airs on KCPT, Kansas City’s PBS station. Investigative Reporter Mike McGraw and Vice President for Digital and Multi-Media Content Carla McCabe will be speaking to us about Flatland KC‘s digital series, “Bloody, MO,” a Civil War-through-modern day video peek into Kansas City’s bloody past–starring equally notorious and unknown gunslingers, fire-starters, and godfathers. The series, which airs on KCPT, has done programs on Willie “The Rat” Cammisano, Sharon “La Pistolera” Kinne, Charles Arthur “Pretty Boy” Floyd, and Silas M. Gordon. They’ll be talking about how they selected and researched their subjects and how they chose to develop the stories about their subjects.

This will be a great program and one that will appeal to writers, readers, and fans of true crime movies/documentaries. Please spread the word!

Join us December 3, 2016 at 11 a.m. in the Carmack Community Room at Johnson County Library’s Central Resource Library, 9875 West 87th Street, Overland Park, Kansas. This meeting is free and open to the public!
