KEENE - Boom Project with Kim Crum, Bonnie Johnson & Laura Power

Come join KIM CRUM, BONNIE JOHNSON, and LAURA POWER as they present the book, THE BOOM PROJECT.

In this captivating collection of prose and poetry authored by members of the baby boom generation, readers will find writing that is provocative, lush, witty, and relatable. Co-editors Crum and Johnson have selected stories, poems, and essays that illustrate the varied experiences of writers of the Ohio River Valley, born between 1946-64. Their voices speak of the river, home, cultural and historical events, coming-of-age, and the coming of aging. This anthology will feel universal to anyone who has ever searched for identity, connection, and a place to call home. Learn more about THE BOOM PROJECT, its editors, and its contributors at www.theboomprojectbook.com.
 
KIMBERLY GARTS CRUM enjoyed a social work career before she became a creative writer. Now, she is the sole proprietor of Shape & Flow Writing Instruction, a studio located in a repurposed slaughterhouse. There, she teaches memoir and personal essay to aspiring writers who want to tell true stories, for posterity or publication. Kim has published in journalistic, literary and academic venues. She is working on the final draft of a segmented memoir titled, SLOUCHING TOWARD SELF-ACTUALIZATION.
 
BONNER OMER JOHNSON received an MFA in Writing from Spalding University's School of Creative and Professional Studies in 2004 as an empty nester. She currently lives in Louisville, KY and is an adjunct professor at Bellarmine University. Fiction and creative non-fiction projects marinating in a drawer include two finished novels, DEATH & BUTTER, and the historical 1932.  Also in its final stages is a collection of essays titled LIES WE BELIEVE UNTILL WE LEARN THE TRUTH. She is creative consultant at The Write Place where she holds workshops and coaches private clients.
 
LAURA POWER was born and raised in western Pennsylvania.She studied civil engineering at Carnegie Mellon and University in Pittsburgh. That’s where she met her college-days boyfriend, and, more importantly, learned to drive his damask-red MG Midget. Mastering a stick shift seemed a more formidable skill back then than all the nerdy measuring, calculating, and analyzing required at school. A few years later, Laura began a brief, but beautiful relationship with her own MG Midget. Retired from a business career, Laura now writes as a hobby and as a freelancer.
