Four Windfall Readings


Reading at Tsunami Books – 5 pm, Dec. 17

Laura LeHew writes,

“As you know, Scott Landfield has been singular in his devotion to the literary world. Most of us already support Tsunami books as much as we can. So when we discussed our December read and Scott asked us to ask as many people as we know, to encourage them to come and buy books this December, it was an easy yes. Now we are asking you to encourage as many people as possible to attend this particular open mic/3rd Saturday reading series on 12/17. Please feel free to help get the word out, to support local businesses and the reading series:

“Poetry for the People, 3rd Saturday Reading Series, requests the pleasure of your company at the December release party of the anthology The Absence of Something Specified (a book which explores the variations on the theme of drought) and open mic in celebration, solidarity and appreciation of the hard work and dedication Tsunami Books has shown throughout the year in support of the literary community. Please come, read your work, listen to some poets, and purchase your holiday gifts. This event, as always, is free and open to the public but we would request you bring a plate of cookies to share in the celebration of the season. Thanks!”
