Creative Community

Kwanza     Habari Gani?

Kuumba.  Creativity — to make the community more beautiful and beneficial for the future, is observed on the sixth night of Kwanzaa. Let’s celebrate creative work in the arts.  Founded in 2013, by Cheryl Clarke, Breena Clarke, and Barbara Balliet, the Hobart Festival of Women Writers will produce its tenth anniversary weekend on June 16, 17 & 18, 2023 celebrating the work of literary women. The Festival takes place in the small village of Hobart, New York, home of seven independent bookstores and a children’s lending library. Hobart is officially designated as The Reading Capital of New York State.

In September, 2020 HFWW returned to an in-person Festival after two years of virtual programming. It was a delight to renew friendships and to meet new Participating Writers and attendees.

River, Cross My Heart, an Oprah book club selection and a classic of African American fiction, is now available for your e-reader.

“The acclaimed bestseller–a selection of Oprah’s Book Club–that brings vividly to life the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC, circa 1925, a community reeling from a young girl’s tragic death.”
