Grant Matheson will be the featured reader at the PEI Writers’ Guild open mic on Thursday, February 8 at 7 p.m. at Receiver Coffee Co., 128 Richmond St., in Charlottetown.
All are welcome to this free event. The first ten writers to sign up may read from their work–poetry or prose–for up to 5 minutes. Following a short break to enjoy some of Receiver Coffee’s delicious offerings, Grant will read.
Grant Matheson is a non-practicing family physician, and father of three who has been in recovery from narcotic addiction since 2005. He practiced both in Montague and Charlottetown during his years as a physician. He now writes about his struggles with opioid addiction in the hopes that he can help others who have loved ones who are struggling, or others who are struggling themselves. His memoir, The Golden Boy, was published by Nimbus Publishing in 2017.
The PEI Writers’ Guild Open Mic Series will continue to run on the second Thursday of each month.
