Author’s Night with David Nilsen

Friday March 18th marks the Friends of the Greenville Public Library’s next Author’s Night and it promises to be very special. Featured author is David Nilsen who publishes the Library’s online literary journal Fourth & Sycamore. Held in the beautiful venue of Montage Cafe in downtown Greenville, doors open at 6:00 with the program at 7:00. Enjoy something to eat or drink as you groove to the tunes of R.J. Price and Bill Westfall.

At this time David has writing published or forthcoming in The Collagist, Rain Taxi, Bright Wall/Dark Room, The Molotov Cocktail, Pithead Chapel, The National Book Critics Circle Critical Mass Journal, Punchnel's, and others. He’s a member of the National Book Critics Circle and has his own writing website from which you can enjoy his work www.davidnilsenwriter.com.

As mentioned David is the manager and critic of www.fourthandsycamore.com responsible for content, design, and maintenance. In a week’s time he reads 2-3 books, reviews and/or interviews their authors, and posts 1-3 of those reviews and interviews as well as creative nonfiction, historical articles, and film critiques.

Other social media include daily Tweets, posts on Facebook, and posts to the GPL Tumblr, thus networking with fans, authors, libraries, other journals, publishers, and other book-related professionals. David’s received many complimentary comments from authors who have appreciated his reviews and interviews. This is a tremendous output but what makes it so amazing is its high level of excellence.

His other contributions to the Library include creating and maintaining an Historical Photograph Archive, creating and hosting Poetry Matters, a poetry appreciation group, and creating, marketing, and hosting The Third Floor Film Series - besides working as a reference librarian and ordering DVDs and making book recommendations. His historical research has turned up many fascinating, little known facts about Greenville and Darke County.

David lives in Greenville with his wife Melinda Guerra and his daughter.  Don’t miss a chance to enjoy a very interesting and unusual program and get to meet this upcoming author. Always a free event and open to the public!
