Writers’ Conference in Southern Chester County

Annette Whipple


Southern Chester County’s Writers Conference was held in November.  The  conference was organized by the directors of the Oxford Library, Kennett Library, and Avon Grove Library and featured over a dozen local authors selling and signing books.


Mark Bowden (Black Hawk Down) delivered the keynote address and breakouts were held by Bruce Mowday (Stealing Wyeth) and Cheryl Gooch (Hinsonville’s Heroes).  The conference was the first of its kind in the area; over ninety people attended.  Access the flier.
