    The first event, taking place Sunday, November 8, from 2 to 4 pm in the library’s main meeting room, will feature five writers, including Newtown Poet Laureate Lisa Schwartz and Ridgefield’s Chris Belden, author of the just-released novel, Shriver. The reading series is curated by Newtown author Sophfronia Scott.

    Occupation: I’m a writer. I received my MFA in July 2014, and I’ll be teaching at the low-residency MFA program at Regis University in Colorado. I’ll go there occasionally, but I’ll work with my students mostly by e-mail. I’ve published one novel, and I have one in submission now — fingers crossed! And in the meantime, I’m working on an essay collection.

    “If you’re going to grow as an author, you have to reach people you don’t know,” said Newtown author and former book coach Sophfronia Scott. That is one reason she was happy to host a book reading and writing Q&A for friend and fellow author Mathieu Callier on the afternoon of Saturday, August 8, at C.H. Booth Library.

    Mr Callier, a Los Angeles author, was in town to promote his recently published collection of short stories, Loss Angeles, and to speak to the craft of writing.
