Before there was the Juniper Bends Author Collective, there was the quarterly reading series featuring established and emerging writers from all genres. Our friends Matt & Mesha, amazing writers both, began the reading series 3 years ago this November, and they hosted a wide array of regional literary influences, from Blake Butler to Kate Zambreno, from Holly Iglesias to Charles Dodd White.
The Juniper Bends Reading Series continues, featuring amazing local writers, good company, and a good time all around.
The next event will be on November 9th at 7pm hosted by the lovely folks at Downtown Books & News. Since it’s our 3rd anniversary, there will be wine for your enjoyment (by donation please and thanks!) as well as brilliant literary styles of multi-genre writer John Crutchfield, novelist Katherine Min, the realist storytelling of Katey Schultz, the musings of absurdist fiction writer (and JBAC member) Chett Tiller, and some of my own poetry!
I will also be acting as (f?)emcee for the evening, and we’ll follow up the reading with drinks and festivities at covert artist haunt The Prospect (best jukebox in town!). Bring friends, we hope to see you!
