South End writers will again share their work with friends and neighbors as the South End branch of the Boston Public Library resumes the South End Writes series.

The South End Writes program, sponsored by the Friends of the South End Library, offers writers living in the neighborhood a chance to share their work at the local library though author talks and readings.

The latest round of talks began last Tuesday and will continue through June.

The Friends of the South End Library started the series three years ago, and the organization says the program has become a valuable opportunity for South End residents to meet neighbors, learn about and from local writers, and discover local history.

“This is what The South End Writes has become: a mirror of literary achievement by the many fine writers, journalists and poets who live where we live, shop where we shop, take the T and go to the polls just like we do,” the friends group writes, announcing the schedule on its website. “We just didn’t know who they were, but increasingly we do.”

This time around local authors set to visit the library include Lynne Potts, April Bernard, Andre Dubus III, Mari Passananti, Doug Bauer, Dennis Lehane, Alice Hoffman, Alice Stone, and Philip Gambone.

More about the authors and their work, and a full schedule of talks is available here.
