The 4th annual California Writers Club picnic will be held at the Fire Circle in Joaquin Miller Park in Oakland on Saturday, July 20, 2013, the day before the Central Board meeting.
As the legend of the founding of CWC goes, Joaquin Miller used to invite his writing friends, including Jack London, to his home for picnics and reading their latest works to each other (much like our Open Mics) in the flat area that is now the Fire Circle. Thus we have ties to Joaquin Miller Park that go back to the days before the founding of CWC in 1909, and the creation of the park itself.
The picnic, open to all CWC members and their guests, combines a potluck, readings, networking, camaraderie and a “Lit Cake” competition – decorate any cake, cookie or other dessert with a literary theme. More details to follow.
To RSVP for the picnic, contact our CWC, Sacramento Branch Central Board Representative Margie Yee Webb at Margie@CatMulan.com.
