Up Next: The Second Half of the 2014-15 Season

Happy New Year!

We’re pleased to announce the lineup for the remainder of this season:

  • Tuesday, February 17 – Justin Phillip Reed and Travis Mossotti
  • Tuesday, March 24 – Angela Hamilton and Jazzy Danziger
  • Tuesday, April 21 – Leigh Kolb and Ben Moeller-Gaa

The readings will be at the Stone Spiral Gallery in Maplewood. Details and bios forthcoming.

Tomorrow! (About Our Venue)

Our inaugural reading event is tomorrow night, 4.29.14, from 7-9 PM, at Stone Spiral Coffee and Curios. Admission is free. We will be featuring writer Elva Maxine Beach and poet Stefene Russell (and we can barely contain our excitement over here).

Stone Spiral is located at 2500 Sutton Blvd. in Maplewood, MO–two blocks north of Manchester. They serve food in addition to the delicious range of coffeehouse beverages, including beer and wine. You should come to feast upon the literary magic of the evening, but you could come early for supper or linger over a glass of wine or lemon ginger tea, too.

See you there.
