Northwest Voices is a collaboration between the Longview Public Library and Lower Columbia College. The Library welcomes this opportunity to bring community and writers together. Come listen, join in the dialog, and celebrate the voices of our region and our community.
Libraries and writers are natural community partners. Both seek to reach out to readers, to stimulate thinking, to engage people in the pursuit of ideas--the writer as creator and the library as enabler.
Funding comes from the Longview Public Library and the Longview Library Foundation, the Lower Columbia College Foundation, the Friends of the Longview Library, and the Associated Students of Lower Columbia College. All events are free and open to the public. Email us for more information.
