Geddes to Hold Writing Workshops for Henderson Libraries

Published writer Cindie Geddes will host a series of writing workshops and an author reading as part of Henderson Libraries’ Summer Reading Program.

Geddes, who has had more than 200 articles published in regional and national magazines and has published more than a dozen Nevada-based fiction stories, will hold workshops and an author reading Monday, June 15, and Tuesday, June 16, at various Henderson Libraries locations:

  • 4-5 p.m. Monday, June 15: Writing workshop at Green Valley Library – located at 2797 N. Green Valley Pkwy., on the corner of E. Sunset Rd.
  • 7-8 p.m. Monday, June 15: Writing workshop at James I. Gibson Library – located at 280 S. Water St., on the corner of W. Basic St.
  • 6-7 p.m. Tuesday, June 16: Writing workshop at Paseo Verde Library – located at 280 S. Green Valley Pkwy., near the I-215.
  • 7:15-8:15 p.m. Tuesday, June 16: Author reading at Paseo Verde Library.

Throughout her career, Geddes has received several grants from the Nevada Arts Council and an artist grant from Sierra Arts Foundation. She is also an artist on the Nevada Arts Council Artist in Residence program. Geddes’ ability to offer workshops is also due to her involvement with the National Endowments for the Arts and the Western States Arts Federation.

The program has been funded, in part, by the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

All of the events are free and open to the public.

Established in 1943 as a single library in Downtown Henderson, Henderson Libraries operates five locations throughout Henderson and plans to open one more within the Heritage Park Senior Center, slated to open this summer. Henderson Libraries cooperates with other public libraries in Southern Nevada, the Nevada System of Higher Education, the Clark County School District and all other libraries around the state to provide quality service for Nevada’s residents.
