Our 2022 Art Embraces Words season is scheduled on Saturday afternoons with readings from 2:00 - 3:30 pm followed by a reception. We alternate writer and artist presenters, announced by our emcee Sue Farmer, LAC Board member and co-chair of Art Embraces Words. Each presenter speaks for approximately 10 minutes with a short audience Q&A. A reception follows outdoors with light refreshments in the adjacent Library Courtyard.
