SARANAC LAKE — The Adirondack Center for Writing’s next Friday Night Writes will feature Amy Godine, author of “The Black Woods.”

Friday Night Writes is a monthly happy hour of writing, reading and networking, open to all, that takes place from 3-7 p.m. on the first Friday of every month at the Adirondack Center for Writing, located at 15 Broadway in Saranac Lake. During these sessions, ACW provides space, prompts, inspiration and resources.

December’s event, Friday, Dec. 1, will also feature a “Friday Night Talk” with Godine from 6-7 p.m. Godine will share about her book and then take questions from the audience. Copies of “The Black Woods” will be available for purchase.

Admission to the event is free, with a suggested donation at the door; RSVP at adirondackcenterforwriting.org/event/friday-night-writes-amy-godine-the-black-woods.

Godine began researching and writing about Adirondack social history in 1988, when she moved to Saratoga Springs. Focusing on the under-told stories of marginalized communities, Godine celebrates the Adirondacks as diverse, vivid and dramatic as the wild land itself. Most of her writing may be found in Adirondack Life as well as many scholarly journals. Godine wrote and curated the exhibition, “Dreaming of Timbuctoo,” for John Brown Lives!, which is on permanent display at the John Brown Farm State Historic Site in North Elba.
