Welcome to the Litchfield County Writers Project Web site!
I hope your semester is off to a smooth but energetic start. I write to introduce myself as the incoming director of the Litchfield County Writers Project and to let you know about the great events we have planned for this semester. Please note that all events are free and open to the public and take place downtown at the Nancy Marine Studio Theatre at the Warner Theatre, Torrington.
Wednesday, April 24 6:30pm-8:00pm
Dislecksia: The Movement
Emmy award-winning filmmaker Harvey Hubbell will discuss the making of Dislecksia: The Movie and host a panel at the Warner Theatre's Nancy Marine Studio Theatre in Torrington, CT. The event is part of UConn Torrington Litchfield County Writers Project's spring series, and is free and open to the public.
Dislecksia: The Movie is a comic documentary on the often misunderstood subject of dyslexia. Its mission is to create public awareness by demonstrating what dyslexia is – not a sign of stupidity as so many believe, but a need to learn in a different way. It helps parents, educators, and communities to learn how to identify those at risk for dyslexia, understand the vast impact when dyslexia goes untreated, and help dyslexics themselves recognize that they have the potential to learn successfully, but that they have to learn in a different way.
The event will be held at the Nancy Marine Studio Theatre, Warner Theatre, Torrington. A reception will follow the event. For further information about the event or to be added to our email list, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 860-626-6802.
