Scranton Roundtable Discussion - 9/15/11

I have been invited to take part in a roundtable discussion of local bloggers (most likely three) that will be taking place on September 15 of 2011. The event will sponsored by Pages and Places and will be taking place at the Vintage Theater in Scranton, PA. The doors open at 6PM with coffee and complimentary wine. The roundtable discussion will begin at 7PM. I will be there for 6PM to enjoy the refreshments and socialize and will stay to chat after the event.

Here is more information about the event from Facebook (where you can RSVP if you would like)

Sponsored by Pages & Places @ Anthology, The Vintage Theater, and Go Lackawanna:

An NEPA Bloggers’ Roundtable Discussion moderated by Go Lackawanna’s Rich Howells.

Who is writing about the Scranton area’s music scene, art scene, business community, politics, and philosophical beliefs – and what are they saying?

Come for coffee and complementary wine at 6 p.m. The program starts at 7 p.m. It is FREE OF CHARGE and open to the public.

Rich Howells will provide perspective on writing as a longtime blogger and as well as a journalist. While the two sides often battle for supremacy in modern media, Rich is of the opinion that both have their own place in delivering important information and opinions to the public.

Guest panelists will include:

Tom Borthwick, local teacher, former candidate for Scranton School Board, and author of www.NEPArtisan.com, one of the leading local political websites.

Justin Vacula, co-organizer for the NEPA Freethought Society, Examiner.com contributor, and the blogger behind www.JustinVacula.com, where he examines atheism, religion, and other philosophical topics.

Harold Jenkins, an autobiographical blogger (http://anothermonkey.blogspot.com/) as well as a contributor to NEPA Bloggers (http://nepablogs.blogspot.com/), a clearinghouse providing links to blogs and other sites about NEPA or by people from NEPA.
