LIVE READING: An Audible Browsing Experience
During the pandemic many of us came to miss browsing in bookstores and libraries. The experience of scanning and flipping through books that we wouldn't ordinarily order for ourselves, but which catch our eye and we find ourselves fingering, flipping, reading, and then checking out and buying.
This reading creates an 'audible browsing' experience by presenting readers who are published authors in a variety of genres. This includes mystery, romance, poetry, memoir, drama, literary and international fiction.
Works featured include Douglas Cole's dramatic novel The White Field, Marcus James' horror title Instructions in Flesh, Desiree Calderon de Fawaz' YA fantasy Quetzalli's Last Song, Heather Diamond's memoir Rabbit In the Moon, Amarjit Pannu's historical fiction I Tell This Tale to the River and/or Splintered Waters, Amanda Moore's collection Requeening, Craig Leener's YA title It Was Never About Basketball, Lynne Thompson's poetry Fretwork, and Oksana Lutsyshyna's Persephone Blues.
Also, Lucille Lang-Day's Poetry and Science: Writing Our Way to Discovery, Susan Rich's Cloud Pharmacy, Sophia Kouidou-Giles' Sophia's Return, Ciera Horton McElroy's Atomic Family, Terry Tierney's Lucky Ride, Lyzette Wanzer's anthology Trauma, Tresses, and Truth, Kathleen Marcath's kids' title My Monster Truck Goes Everywhere With Me, Tamara Sellman's Intention Tremor, Jay Hartlove's The Insane God, Jen Karetnick's The Burning Where Breath Used to Be, Leticia Escalera's A Journey to Begin in Life, poetry from Leticia Garcia Bradford, Mary Mackey's Creativity: Where Poems Begin, Lorna Dee Cervantes' APRIL ON OLYMPIA (Marsh Hawk Press) available from SPDBooks, and Dianne Bilyak's Nothing Special.
This is an offsite reading during the Association of Writing Programs conference (AWP) and so the readers are conference attendees but the event is free and open to the public and for all ages. Ada's Technical Books is a mile or two east of the convention center and on a bus line.
An open mic may be possible if there's time after the readers, we'll play it by ear.
