A lively new literary series hosted by Chronogram books editor Nina Shengold kicks off tonight at 6 pm and continues every Thursday through November 20. Word Cafe is held at uptown Kingston’s Outdated: an antique cafe, to provide a blend of reading series, author interviews, and writing classes by acclaimed Hudson Valley authors. Authors will read and discuss their work, and--after a short break--optional writing exercises are offered.

Bestselling memoirist Abigail Thomas begins the series by discussing the topic of “Getting Started." To learn more about Thomas read about the featured writer here. Every class is self-standing, but each addresses a different craft topic. Thomas will be followed by Orange-Prize-winning novelist Valerie Martin on September 11, Lambda-Award-winning poet Mark Wunderlich on September 13, and bestselling memoirist Beverly Donofrio on Septebmer 25. October and November guests include Amitava Kumar, Alison Gaylin, Laura Shaine Cunningham, Jana Martin & Greg Olear, Carol Goodman, Sari Botton, Kiese Laymon, and Joseph Luzzi.

Word Cafe will run from Thursday September 4 to November 20 6:00-7:30pm at outdated: an antique cafe, 314 Wall Street, Kingston. Individual classes are $15, with a discount rate of $150 for the series of 12. Books will be available for sales and signing, courtesy of Woodstock's Golden Notebook.
