Renaissance Centre Introduces ‘Writer’s Night In The Forest’

The Wake Forest Renaissance Centre has announced a new monthly series designed for avid readers in our community.

‘Writer’s Night in the Forest’ is a chance for anyone who enjoys getting lost in a good book to gather at the Renaissance Centre to socialize, network and explore a variety of reading selections. As a bonus, the Renaissance Centre will invite a different author each month to discuss a particular book.

The first Writer’s Night in the Forest is scheduled for Thursday, July 17, from 7 to 9 p.m. and will feature Flora J. Solomon, author of the novel “A Pledge of Silence.”

“A Pledge of Silence” is a World War II novel about American military nurses who served in the Philippines. A semi-finalist in the Amazon Breakout Novel Award contest and one of the top five entries of 2,000 in the General Fiction category, the narrative shares the incredible story of a young woman whose life changes forever when she is captured by enemy forces and held as a prisoner of war.

The August installment of Writer’s Night in the Forest is scheduled for Thursday, August 14, and will feature Nancy Livingstone, author of “Against Their Will.”

Writer’s Night in the Forest is free and open to anyone who enjoys reading and discussing a good book.
