We are having our reception for Mira Dougherty-Johnson, our July writer-in-residence, Monday, July 9, at 6:00. As usual, we will hear from her for a few minutes and then snack, sip and visit with her and each other. We hope you can join us.

Mira Dougherty-Johnson writes on the East End of Long Island, where she works as a librarian and lives with her husband and two teenage sons. She recently got her MFA at Stony Brook University’s Southampton Arts and has work published in Fourth Genre, The Southeast Review, The Southampton Review, Tupelo Quarterly, and Vela. Mira is currently working on a novel about what happens when an artist couple’s best work is their children. Set in New York City in the early 1980s, this family must learn to forge new conduits to each other, or they will be destined to be the distant versions of themselves already hanging on museum walls.
