It may have been cold outside, but the energy in Cheshire on February 10th kept everyone warm. Our second Speak Easy of the year brought a balance of poetry and prose as 10 local writers shared their work — with six of them visiting our stage for the first time! We had published authors and people just starting out, and like all our open-topic events, things got exciting at times. All-in-all, it was a fun day featuring some great writing.
Next Up: Join us Sunday March 10 at 1:00 pm for our first-ever live storytelling event! No notes, no tablets, nothing written at all! It’s a celebration of the art of storytelling. Get your tickets before they’re gone!
