Fall DWC Readings Draw to a Close

The fall season at the DWC is winding down and what a tremendous success! Now in our 11th year, we have had the best attendance for our reading series in our center's history. The line-up of tremendous writers that Phil selected was a blend of local authors and those who are nationally noted. In particular, the evening with B.H. Fairchild was magnificent, and was a part of the SU Humanities Center's Syracuse Symposium, with this year's theme being Memory, Media, Archive. We appreciated the opportunity to collaborate with the Humanities Center once again.

We are now preparing for the first ever Central New York Book Awards celebration on Thursday, October 29th. Nominations were submitted from a wide array of writers who have produced books in 2012 in poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. The awards will be announced during the reception at Chancellor Nancy Cantor's house on the SU campus. The 24 very talented writers whose work was being considered gave the judges many remarkable books from which to select. The finalists for the awards are:
