We’re piecing together interesting readers…to read interesting pieces together. Come enjoy an evening of literary entertainment as you listen to selected works – from classic to contemporary, all revolving around the theme of “Home” – read aloud by members of our community. A moderated conversation about reading and “home” – including how we sometimes feel “at home” in the pages of a book – will follow. This event is produced by A Lifely Read, with assistance from Fugitive Productions. (The Silver Unicorn Bookstore will be on hand selling a selection of books from which the readings will be excerpted!)
