Eminent Authors’ Birthdays Open Reading

A monthly conclave of literature devotees

Each month, we gather to read aloud from the works of authors we admire– or suspect we might admire.  The organizing conceit is that the author should be born in the month at hand… June in this case…

Check with us at the store if you’d like suggestions as to who’s a candidate for this month (we keep a list of birthdays)…

This month, the celebrated writers might include talents as diverse as Nikki Giovanni and William Butler Yeats, plus Dorothy Sayers, Allen Ginsberg, Federico Garcia Lorca, Djuna Barnes, Aleksandr Pushkin (Blanche has him covered, we’d bet), etc., etc., etc.

Do come!
