2021 Past Episodes of Write America

2021 was a busy and memorable year for Write America. Most notably, the host duties switched from the Book Revue to Byrd's Books in Bethel, CT due to the fact the Book Revue closed its doors.

As the owner of Byrd's Books I am trilled to serve as home base for such a great series with so many impressive authors, poets and artists.

Here is an archive of the episodes we hosted in 2021. (The episodes from the Book Revue are listed at the bottom of the page).
