Writers Can Read – February Edition

February 17, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


This month’s Writers Can Read series will feature two local writers – WV author Kathy Manley, and artist and author Bonnie Proudfoot. The event is free and open to the public and will take place on Monday, February 17 at 7 P.M. at The Inner Geek bookshop located at Pullman Square in downtown Huntington.

Katherine Manley lives in southern West Virginia and has been an educator in Logan County schools for over 35 years. She’s the author of Don’t Tell’em You’re Cold: a Memoir of Poverty and Resilience and is a fellow of the 1995 West Virginia Writing Project. Her writing has been featured in Hamilton Stone Review, Traditions: A Journal of West Virginia Folk Culture and Educational Awareness, The Guyandot Observer, and Fearless: Women’s Journeys to Self-Empowerment.

Bonnie Proudfoot moved to the Appalachian region in 1979 and has lived here since, teaching for many years at Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio. She is a fiction writer, a poet, and a glass artist. Goshen Road is her first novel. Set in the late 1960s through the early 1990s, it tells the story of a West Virginia working-class family.

The “Writers Can Read” open mic night reading series takes place on the third Monday of each month (all year) from 7:00-8:30 at The Inner Geek at Pullman Square in Huntington, West Virginia. The event features two award-winning, published authors that serve as “featured readers” to begin the event each month. Previous featured readers have included: Marc Harshman, Denise Giardina, Crystal Wilkinson, Jonathan Corcoran, Doug Van Gundy, Robert Gipe, Nick White, and others. Afterwards, the mic is open to anyone in the audience that would like to share a creative work.
