Creative Writing Class at Arab Museum in Dearborn


Dearborn, MI (September 17, 2007) – The Arab American National Museum invites all budding authors to attend a free interactive creative writing workshop from 1-2:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 6.

Garwood will also do a brief reading from Zenobia at the conclusion of the workshop. Read more about the author at
