If you missed Open Mic Night… April 22, 2009

Our Open Mic Night on Tuesday was a fantastic kick-off for our 2009 Reading Series. I venture to say that we were treated to the widest range of styles and subjects we’ve ever seen at one of these events. A novelist shared the first chapter of his not-yet-published mystery, we heard a ballad of the Gold Rush, a song about springtime, and a poem written in Abenaki and English. There were verses on the lure of cigarettes and junk food, the village blacksmith, love enduring and love disintegrating, flowers, bombings, and one conversation at the Greensboro Garage.

Although most of our audience had sat quietly while waiting for the evening to begin, at the end of the night I overheard many lively conversations about what had been read and information about writing groups and other open readings being exchanged. It was wonderful to see this meeting and mingling of talented writers, and I thank everyone who attended and participated!
