I love making puns about the summer Literary Firsts reading: it’s sultry, steamy, scorching–hot. On Monday night, we were actually very warm as the air conditioner at Middlesex Lounge had broken. But the Middlesex crew took care of us, as always. I cannot sing praises high enough for the staff and management at our venue. They’re the best.
Speaking of the best, the readers were so very on. I’m so grateful to them for bringing such stellar work and for being gracious despite the swelter! If you were there, you can confirm that room was alive, but just in case you weren’t there, photos are below and links to the videos follow thereafter. (Many thanks to Randolph Pfaff for taking the photos and for letting me hijack your YouTube account while I get mine straightened out.)
