Literary group pays tribute to local authors on eve of premiere writer’s conference

EPIC Group Writers has just completed installation of a book display at Edmonds Public Library as an initiative to coincide with the Write On The Sound (WOTS) writer’s conference, which takes place in Edmonds the first weekend of October.

The display, curated and designed by EPIC members Vivian Murray and Judith Works, is comprised of books by local authors, and represents an impressive display of the literary legacy of Edmonds-area authors.

“It was so fun to set up,” says Works, who has just received word this week that her book, Coins In the Fountain, is on the short list of semi-finalists for the Journey 2017 Book Awards in the category narrative non-fiction.

Readers can follow the achievements of all of the EPIC Group writers at the organization’s Facebook page or official website.
