Tonight I attended Neeley Bridges's CD launch party at Drew Bridges Storyteller's Book Shop in downtown Wake Forest, which will be officially opened to the public on Fri. July 18th. Drew is Neeley's dad and she is a singer/songwriter/actress in NYC. She sounded beautiful -- think Norah Jones's style of jazz and blues. Her local band was also very pitch perfect.
A few days ago I helped shelve Drew's poetry and historical fiction and it was so much fun being part of something before it opens to the world. Drew has invited me to offer creative writing workshops at his store, so stayed tuned!
