A little history: Writers Read, founded by Susan Sparrow and Hal Zina Bennett of Tenacity Press, has been happening monthly on the last Thursday of the month since 1999 in Ukiah, California, starting at the Emerald Cafe, moving to the Saturday Afternoon Club, then to Colored Horse Studios for five years (2004-2009) and as of 2009, back almost full-circle to Art Center Ukiah’s annex, which is next door to the former location of the Emerald Cafe. Dan Barth and Theresa Whitehill co-produced the series with Susan and Hal for many years. As of August 2014, Bill Churchill took over producing the series with Theresa Whitehill as co-producer. As of January 2017, Michael Riedell has taken over hosting the series, with Theresa Whitehill, Dan Barth, and Bill Churchill as co-producers. As of January 2019, the series moved to the Grace Hudson Museum Community Room. Michael Riedell and Dan Barth co-produce and co-host the series.
