She is a Northeast Ohio Master of Fine Arts graduate.

Sachs, a Youngstown native, is the author of “the steam sequence” (Washington Writers Publishing House) and “Descendants of Eve” (Blue Lyra Press) and editor of the anthology “the why and later” (Deep Cleveland Press). She is the coordinator for the PJ Library Program in Lexington, Kentucky.

The reading starts 7 p.m. Wednesday, and will be followed by an open mic co-hosted by Laurin Wolf. It can be viewed on Lit Youngstown’s Facebook page, and those interested in participating in the open mic can register for a Zoom link at www.LitYoungstown.org.
