My good friend and artist Diane Bush sent me this wonderful information about Reno based writer Brad Summerhill. Brad will be offering a free workshop this coming Monday at Sunrise Coffee. For more information please take a look at the information below. 

FREE Writer's Workshop and Reading at Sunrise Coffee
Monday, July 26, 6-8pm

Brad Summerhill, a visiting writer from northern Nevada is in town briefly (in part) to promote his recently launched (July 21) first novel, GAMBLER'S QUARTET.

As part of the TUMBLEWORDS Nevada Arts Council program, Brad
will be offering a free creative workshop and reading, this Monday, July 26, at
Sunrise Coffee.

At 6pm, Brad will be reading a few short excerpts from his
book, and then take a questions about his process, etc. We will have a small
intermission, and conduct a free creative writing workshop for the first 20
attendees, from 7-8pm.

What they are saying about GAMBLER'S QUARTET: "Brad Summerhill writes a story of obsession and betrayal with an intensity that burns like neon. His characters move through a surreal landscape of desire,
terror and loneliness...", "Brad Summerhill understands the tragic seduction of gambling and his work introduces that bleak and complex world in a tight, often tense, but ultimately redemptive narrative that challenges at our
notion of human strength and vulnerability...

Sunrise Coffee is located at 3130 E. Sunset Rd., (between Pecos and Eastern)LV, NV 89120. Sunrise serves only organic coffee and has great food too! See you then!
