|To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Peace Corps in 2001, PeaceCorpsWriters.org and its founding organization, RPCV Writers & Readers, is staging thanks to a generous grant from The Florence and John Schumann Foundation a series of readings by published Peace Corps writers in cities across America. John Coyne, Editor, and Marian Haley Beil, Publisher, are organizing these readings with assistance from the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA), and the Peace Corps.
The readings are held in book stories, colleges, high schools, local libraries and community centers locations where they can educate, delight, and impress a wide variety of audiences.
At each event, one or more published authors will read from their own works writings that reflect on, or were informed by, their Peace Corps experience. Other PC-related readers, especially RPCVs reading from their own letters home are encouraged to participate.
Contact John Coyne at: firstname.lastname@example.org to explore the possibilities of co-hosting a very special celebration in your community or on your campus, or if you would like to participate in a reading, or lend support.
