We held our third reading of the 2018 premiere season on August 24, and I’m annoyed it’s taken me this long to write it up because it was a beauty.
Josh and I organized this one around the dual theme of Alone – Together, and the range of work was inspiring. Our host Courtney Schlachter, owner of Quiet City Books, was warm and welcoming as ever, and we had a nice crowd who made tea and sipped coffee and munched the cookies I brag about baking for each event. For the first time I was able to relax a little and chat with our guest readers afterwards, which was a nice bonus for me.
Thanks to Lewiston photographer Gary Stallsworth, who has attended and documented on Facebook every reading so far, I’ve got photos of all of us reading our work. Pause the slide show so you can read my favorite lines from each reading.
Many thanks as always to my organizing partner Josh Gauthier, to Courtney, and to Gary for these great pics. Much love to our guest readers, all of whom I hope will come back next year to read with us again.
