Who likes ice cream? We do! Who loves an ice-cream social? We certainly do! So imagine our delight when we heard that American Writers Review is throwing one on Saturday October 30. And to add to the joy, Helen and Barry will be among contributors reading a selection of their pieces from the latest issue of AWR, Turmoil and Recovery. There’ll also be readings from Art in the Time of COVID-19. Both books are published by San Fedele Press.
Our Ice Cream Social at Wilkes University was a delight. While we can’t hand out the ice cream this year, we can share some of the wonderful work of our latest two books with you virtually.San Fedele Press
Now, because this event is being hosted from the Jersey Shore in the US, we have to adjust the time to our location here in Australia. And it turns out that we’ll be enjoying ice-cream over an early breakfast on the Sunday morning. Even die-hard ice-cream fans Jennifer and Barry would struggle to eat any at that hour. It’ll more likely be a strong-coffee-and-Danish-pastry social for us.
San Fedele Press say that this event is of particular interest to ‘those who are interested in writing for our publication, new writers, and seasoned writers’. If you’d like to learn more about the publications and the event, go here. You’ll find the Zoom link at the top of the page you land on.
We might see you there. With ice cream, Danish, or otherwise!

It’ll be strong coffee for me on an early Sunday morning. I’m really excited about meeting other AWR writers from across the sea. I guess this is one of the big positives of zoom events – we could never do this in person

I know, yes. Remember when they had their last ice-cream social, and we were saying how much fun it would be if we were able to go? I’m excited that now we actually can. Well, not actually, virtually.

Reblogged this on Barry Lee Thompson and commented:
San Fedele Press is hosting an Ice Cream Social this weekend, from the Jersey Shore in the US. The virtual event is taking place via Zoom on Saturday from 4.30pm Eastern Time, which is 7.30am Sunday in Melbourne. I’ll be reading my short story ‘Glassy’ from American Writers Review 2021: Turmoil and Recovery. I can’t wait to find out what virtual ice-cream tastes like.
