Local Writers Reading Original Works

1.jpg

Authors in Pubs is a 'First Monday' event that brings local writers into a bar, restaurant, or wherever and allows them to share their work with the patrons. This helps boost the confidence of the writer by getting first hand feedback on his/her work. We started in September, 2011 and the crowd has steadily grown so that we recently moved to a larger venue. The show runs about two hours and we invite you to show up early and stay after to talk with the writers or possibly buy their book. If you would like to contribute at a future event, please contact me in advance about being added to our current stable of writers. thanks, Don

The Nov 5th show rocked. Jazz pianist Jonathan Swanson played for an hour prior to the show, also while Grant Keltner was reading and during the break. Great stuff. For December, our regular band, The Consort Symbiotic, will return and also play before and during the show.

We had 67 guests with many friends from Multnomah Village in attendance. One of the most well received writers was Erik J. Romano, who brought a film crew with him. Look for us to have another great event in December. See you then.
