A Wonderful Weekend Reading

This weekend,  I hosted a mixed genre reading at New Visions Studio and Gallery in Scranton with my friend and fellow writer Jason Lucarelli.We launched the reading not only to showcase local writrs, but also to get people in  New Visions, a quaint space about two blocks down from Lackawanna College. The owners host music shows, comedy acts, and an array of art shows. But this was the first literary event they’ve had.

 Our other featured readers, Amye Archer, Tom Borthwick,Norma Bernstock, Alexis Czencz Belluzzi, and Steve Keating, all did a fantastic job, earning laughs and OOOs from folks in the audience.  The audience itself was also very receptive and attentive, and a wide range of different ages. I hope they continue to support the gallery and its various events.

Because the first event was successful, we decided to schedule another reading for Saturday, January 14 at 7 pm. We are currently in the process of booking the readers. Like the first showcase, the next one will feature a mix of genres.
