Remembering Drema Hall Berkheimer: A Memorial Reading
Sunday, September 23 | 2-4pm | The Writer’s Garret | 1250 Majesty Dr, Dallas, TX 75247
The Writer’s Garret comes together with the DFW literary community to celebrate the life of a writer important to the history of the Garret and to our friends: Drema Hall Berkheimer. A beloved long-time member of our Community and Membership Program (CAMP) and our Stone Soup Peer Critique Groups, Drema arrived at the Garret an unpublished writer with one wish: to put down in writing the life stories she wished to pass on to her grandchildren. From this wish, Drema’s writing flourished and ultimately became her debut memoir: Running on Red Dog Road and Other Perils of an Appalachian Childhood.
Join us on September 23, 2-4pm, at The Writer’s Garret’s home at Metropolitan Press as Drema’s friends come together to give feature readings from her body of work and celebrate memories of her life. This memorial will feature readings from Kathleen Rodgers, Bill Marvel, and more.
