This month’s featured writers are Bill Chisham, Janet Johnson and Graham Hutchins.

Chisham is the author of three books. “The Road North” tells of leaving California at age 52 in a vintage Ford wagon with $500 for a new career in Alaska. “The Photo Op” follows a couple with a missing roll of film who hide in Alaska after two mysterious murders. “Habitatin’ For Humanity is a guide to building a Habitat house.

Johnson is a writer of fiction, nonfiction, poetry and biography. She is the published author of two books. Hutchins earned a B.D. in Theology from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, and has served congregations throughout the Pacific Northwest and the world. She has taught philosophy, literature, humanities and religious studies in several colleges and universities in Washington and Idaho.

Hutchins has published poems in alive now!, The Qumran Anthology and Tidepools. His book, “Some Words for All Seasons,” is a series of poems and photographs on the natural and liturgical seasons of the year.

The Fourth Friday featured writers are followed by an hour of open-mic readings. Those interested in reading their poetry or prose are invited to put their names in the hat. Five minutes are allowed for each reader.
