Connections: Writers & Books Brings Words And People Together

Jun 23, 2016

We shine the spotlight on Writers & Books, a literacy center in Rochester's Neighborhood of the Arts.

For more than 35 years, Writers & Books has promoted reading and writing within the community through writing classes and workshops, outreach programs, readings and talks, and more.

We talk to the center's founder and retired executive director, Joe Flaherty, about how Writers & Books has grown throughout the years. We are also joined by the center's new executive director, Kyle Semmel, who shares his plans for the organization's future.
