They may call it a speakeasy, but it's not easy! Reading takes practice. Is that a hard G? a soft G? What is a long A anyway? But seriously, reading your own stuff out loud to an angry mob can be a little nerve wracking. Well, it's not an angry mob, they are actually really nice people who are interested in what you have to share and love hearing new work. STILL...I sometimes get nervous. Which is why Reading at Brando's Speakeasy is a must!
Bring your new (or old) poetry, flash fiction, non-fiction, or a excerpt from a longer piece. The event usually begins around 9pm, but get there early to get a good seat, a drink, and chat with our excellent friends at Brando's. Readings are fun and low key and a great way to share your stuff and see what else is out there. This event will be our last at Brando's for the season, but stay tuned to hear about the Book Cellar on December 16th and all our Awesome events in 2011.
