South Euclid-Lyndhurst Branch

Writer’s Center Conference Room (65)

This event will be held in-person in the Writers' Center meeting room.

Writers write, talk, and connect. Drop in any or every Friday at the Writers' Center between 2:00 and 5:00 p.m. and get some writing done in the company of other writers. Bring your laptop or notebook. You'll also find other writers to talk with about your writing progress and challenges. 

Here's what to expect:

2:00-2:15 p.m. -- Talk, catch up, ask questions.
2:15-3:00 p.m. -- Write!
3:00-3:15 p.m. -- Talk, catch up, ask questions.
3:15-4:00 p.m. -- Write!
4:00-4:15 p.m. -- Talk, catch up, ask questions.
4:15-5:00 p.m. -- Write!

For writers who need to meet or talk during the writing time, we've got you covered with a Conversation Room. You're also welcome to hang out in that room the whole time, if you prefer.  

#AmWriting is facilitated by a friendly group of volunteers, including co-leader Nicole Clarkson, a novelist and poet. #AmWriting's founder and 2022-2023 Writer in Residence, Abby L. Vandiver, attends whenever she can.

The prolific Abby writes under several pen names. As Abby L. Vandiver, she has approximately 20 self-published books as well as the traditionally published Romaine Wilder Mysteries from Henery Press. In this trilogy, beginning with Secrets, Lies and Crawfish Pies, an East Texas medical examiner and her feisty, funeral home-owning auntie solve murders in their small town. Vandiver also edited the 2021 anthology, Midnight Hour: A Chilling Anthology of Crime Fiction From 20 Authors of Color.

As Abby Collette, she has two mystery series published by Berkley Penguin Books. A Deadly Inside Scoop, first in the Ice Cream Parlor mystery series, introduces us to an MBA-holding, millennial granddaughter who comes home to run a family-owned ice cream shop in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. 

Abby Collette's second crime trilogy from Berkley is the Books & Biscuits mystery series. Body and Soul Food stars a set of fraternal twins who reunite and open a bookstore and soul food café. The second book in the series, Soul of a Killer, comes out October 4, 2022. 

Abby's newest pen name, Cade Bentley, debuted August 30, 2022 with Where Wild Peaches Grow, a deeply emotional novel of family, cultural heritage, and forgiveness.

About the branch

The City of South Euclid will conduct a resurfacing project on South Green Road between Mayfield Road and Cedar Road that we anticipate will result in travel delays. The resurfacing project is expected to begin Monday, April 3, 2023, and continue through late fall. During that time, we encourage all visitors to the South Euclid-Lyndhurst Branch of Cuyahoga County Public Library to plan accordingly and allow themselves ample travel time. The South Euclid-Lyndhurst Branch will remain open for normal hours of operation during construction.  

Click here for more information about the Green Road resurfacing project from the Cuyahoga County Department of Public Works.
