Long-time Edgemoor resident Fred Berner will trace the history of downtown Bethesda and its environs – from an impenetrable forest and narrow trail in the 18th Century to a way station and trolley stop in the 19th Century to a civic center and bedroom community in the 20th Century. Learn how Edgemoor, the first automobile suburb, was created before and during World War I; how Battery Park, Greenwich Forest, and Whitehall Manor were later developed; and how Bradley Hills affected them all. Co-sponsored by Bethesda Metro Area Village and Connie Morella Library. Free and open to the public. Join us in Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/96536066600?pwd=ZGl3YmVwOGVnemZPWHJuU1piT01VQT09

Join author Kim Malinowski once each month for a series of writing workshops covering Flash Fiction, Prose Poetry, Flash Memoir, and the Hybrid Short.

Short forms are becoming increasingly popular both to write and to read. Shorts are usually less than 1,000 words, at the most 1,500 words, and include hybrid genres such as Flash Fiction, Prose Poetry, Flash Memoir, and the Hybrid Short. Each of our sessions will begin with a prompt which explores technique. Participants are encouraged to send in a “short” they have written to each session for workshopping. Guidance will be given to assure that all participants learn to critique each other’s work respectfully and in a way that will be helpful to the writer. Kim Malinowski has an M.F.A. from American University. She has numerous magazine publications, a chapbook Death: A Love Story, and a forthcoming book of poetry: Home.
