Presented by the River Road Parks Department, with a special grant from the Lane Literary Guild as well as a rental donation by Hank Alley and Austin Grey and hosted by Joan Dobbie, Erica Goss, and Martha Gatchell, The RIVER ROAD READING SERIES (RRRS)earlier known as the LANE WRITERS READING SERIES, proudly showcases local and regional writers of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, as well as composers and songwriters on occasion. And, on occasion, a special guest from afar. Readings typically include three authors, and once or twice a year there may be a special presentation.
