Last week, we held our first monthly open mic night to great success. The shop was packed with familiar and unfamiliar faces and the readings included everything from Nevil Shute to a poem by Maurice Careme said in French by the resident six year old.
This particular open mic event was special on two accounts. Firstly, because it was the first time we’d done it. And secondly, because it also marked out seventh year anniversary of the shop being opened. It was so good to see all our friends there celebrating with us and reminding us of all the wonderful, bookish relationships we have made so far along the way.
Starting now, Open Mic Readings will take place on the second Friday of each month, starting at 6pm. Anyone is welcome to come and read, either from their own writing or a favorite book or poem, but please call the store first to make sure you get a time slot and consider the content of your reading in regards to the mixed audience (this is an all ages event.)
