It’s official! Literary Firsts is in its fifth year! To help celebrate, we had a wealth of talent in the room on Monday night. Obehi Janice wowed us with three essays, Steven LaFond was a man on fire with short fiction, Ravi Shankar brought the room to a serene calm with his poems, and Lillian Medville stirred everything back up with her confessional tale. It was a thrilling event that made me so happy to be a part of this community and to have a hand in this series.

Thanks a million to everyone who made it. Thanks to everyone who read. I can’t wait for July.
