WordFest celebrates storytelling through film
August 4, 2022
WordFest will meet on Tuesday, August 9, 6-8 p.m., at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 1428 22nd Avenue in Longview.
Filmmaker Ron Walker of Astoria will discuss filmmaking as a form of storytelling, showing excerpts from films he has made over the past 40 years.
Long time Kelso resident Dan Myers will read from his first novel, a murder mystery titled Kill the Rich. Myers grew up west of Longview and graduated from R.A. Long High School in 1961. A computer programmer and system analyst, he began programming computers in 1964, he says, “when computers filled entire rooms and had less power than today’s smart phone.” He’s lived in Kelso for the last 38 years, serving 10 of those years on the Kelso city council.
School teacher, songwriter, and spiritual life coach, Cody Rothwell will read from his book The Mystic Shift. Raised an evangelical Christian, Rothwell underwent a spiritual transformation in 2010, that led to his breaking free from conventional Christianity and embarking on the mystical path of Christianity.
Due to Covid, it is recommended that people be vaccinated and boosted if possible, and wear masks when not eating or drinking.
The monthly gathering of readers and writers meets the second Tuesday of each month, 6-8 p.m., in the fellowship hall of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church. The events are free and open to the public.
