Writers’ Conference April 23-24

Calhoun Community College, in partnership with the Princess Theatre Center for the Performing Arts, will present the sixth annual Writers’ Conference on April 23-24.

Featured writer for this year’s conference is Clifton Taulbert, author of “Once Upon a Time, When We Were Colored.”

He will speak as part of the lecture series at the Princess Theatre at 7 p.m. April 23. Admission is $10 for the public; $5 for kindergarten through 12th-grade teachers and students; and free to Calhoun faculty, staff and students (school and Calhoun IDs required).

The second day of the conference, beginning at 9 a.m. at Calhoun Aerospace Training Center, will be free and open to the public.

Taulbert, a Pulitzer-nominated author and the president and founder of the Building Community Institute, speaks throughout the world about the need to build community and create an environment branded by respect, affirmation and inclusion.

He is also the author of the internationally acclaimed book “Eight Habits of the Heart,” which provides the framework on which to build, maintain and sustain a powerful, effective and caring community.

Taulbert will autograph copies of his works during both sessions. Copies of “Once Upon a Time” and “Eight Habits of the Heart” are now available for purchase at the Calhoun bookstore and will be available at the conference.
