Series at Butterfield Library and Rec Center

Susan Wallach will lead two upcoming writing workshops, one on Monday nights from 7 to 9 p.m. starting April 6 and running for six weeks until May 11 at the Butterfield Library in Cold Spring, and the other on Wednesday mornings from 10 a.m. to noon, starting April 8 and running for six weeks at the Philipstown Recreation Center in Garrison.

Wallach, an accredited leader of the Amherst Writers and Artists method, was an editor at Random House and is a published author.
