Last updated 6/8/2018 at 6:54pm

C. Gregory Thompson is the featured author at the upcoming Writers Read, June 12, at the Fallbrook Library.

FALLBROOK – Writers Read at Fallbrook Library will feature promising writer C. Gregory Thompson, 6 to 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, June 12, in the community room.

Thompson, a Pushcart Prize nominee, lives in Los Angeles and writes fiction, nonfiction, plays and memoir. His work has appeared or is forthcoming in Storgy magazine, Writers Resist, Five:2:One, Cowboy Jamboree, Full Grown People, The Offbeat, Printers Row Journal and Reunion: The Dallas Review.

Four of Thompson's short stories were included in the 2017 New Short Fiction Series. He was named a finalist in the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival's 2015 Fiction Contest, and his short play, "Cherry," won two playwriting awards.

He earned a master's degree in creative writing and writing for the performing arts at the University of California Riverside, Palm Desert campus, in 2016, and he has recently completed his first short story collection.

The free reading begins with an open mic session for poetry and prose, followed by the author presentation and discussion.

Fallbrook Library is located at 124 S. Mission Road, between Alvarado and Fig streets.

There is no reading in July. The next Writers Read, Tuesday, Aug. 14, will be an all-open-mic night, "Come Out of the Closet and Read," for all those writers who've not yet dared to share their creative writing – and those who have.
