Stories and Observations
Here (this blog roll) is a good place to discover what happens at and around Books on the Pond in Charlestown, Rhode Island.
"What is an 'Art & Writing Center'?" We get this question a lot. Located on 2.2 acres and in four 'barns,' BoP is a place to browse books with many comfortable places to sit and read them. BoP is also a place to look at and experience different forms of visual art from works on paper, acrylic paintings, prints, sculpture to the digital arts.
We offer a book club, readings, and art openings. When summer turns to fall, we hold writing classes in our big, red, toasty warm barn.
The below 'riffs' (if you, on principal, are irked by the words 'blog posts') are short musings on how we have been inspired by our unique natural world by the beach and also by literature, art, and most of all, you (our patrons, customers, visitors and students).
Feedback and comments are always welcome. Please, join in!
