Pagoda Writer's Club
About the EventThe Pagoda Writer’s Club initially began with several students in a writing class at the GoggleWorks Center for the Arts in Reading. This group contributed to the publication of The Pagoda Centennial Tales, a collection of photographs, personal stories, memories, and opinions from local residents and visitors alike.
Through their words we return to the early 20th Century and travel one hundred years to the present.
The writers meet on the first Saturday of each month from 1:00-3:00 p.m.
