  • Stoltz Listening Room
  • Doors: 5:30pm / Talk: 6:00pm

The Spy and the Avalon join forces again for the final Spring program of “Spy Nights”!

Columnist, author, and educator Laura Oliver will take to the Stoltz stage for a public reading from her collected writings. Since she started to write her Sunday column for the Spy Media Newspaper Group, Laura has developed an exceptional following of readers, always eager to read her humorous—as well as sometimes heartbreaking—musings on life.

As an award-winning developmental book editor and writing coach, Laura has taught writing at the University of Maryland and St. John’s College. She is the recipient of a Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Award in Fiction, a winner of an Anne Arundel County Arts Council Literary Arts Award, a two-time Glimmer Train Short Fiction finalist, and her work has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.

She is also the author of “The Story Within: New Insights and Inspiration for Writers” (Penguin Random House), selected by “Poets and Writers Magazine” as one of the best writing books ever published.
