The AHOPE writers workshop (geared toward people who are dealing with homelessness or who have recently moved into apartments after being homeless) experiments with different literary styles to help non-writers develop their voices. Group facilitator Annie Fahy says, "Writing and art can save your life." Members of the AHOPE writers workshop will share their work as part of the Juniper Bends Reading Series, held at Downtown Books & News on Thursday, May 17. The 7 p.m. event includes refreshments and will offer zines for sale. http://www.downtownbooksandnews.com.
