Launch Party for Fall•Winter 2017

On Thursday, November 2nd, Word Fountain, the Literary Magazine of the Osterhout Free Library will celebrate the launch of our 14th issue since that first experimental leaflet in the fall of 2009.

There was a two-year hiatus between the spring of 2014 and the summer of 2016 when we re-launched the lit mag with a new look and a new mission, to bring local, national, and global writers of poems and short stories together into one place for our patrons and friends. This will be the fourth issue since the magazine’s rebirth.

Join us if you can at 6:00 pm on November 2nd in the Reading Room of our library’s main branch at 71 South Franklin Street in Wilkes-Barre. If you can’t be there in person, we’ll be going live from our Facebook page that night, so be sure to follow us there:

Several contributors will be present to read their work, both from the issue and elsewhere. Some will have books and materials available for purchase. Light refreshments will be served, and all attendees will receive a copy of the issue.

Here again are all the details:
