Photos and videos from Tuesday night’s reading

Tuesday evening’s Literary Firsts hit all the notes I want from a reading—it made me think, it made me laugh, it made me sigh. The readers were at the very top of their game, and I was thrilled to hear them share their work.

Thanks, as always, to Randolph Pfaff for handling the bulk of the recording duties, photo and video:

Thanks to everyone who made it out, especially (of course) Amy, Nicole, Jeremy, and Dan. And if you couldn’t make it, you can check out the videos here.

I hope to see you in October when we close out 2014 with our autumn reading—more details soon!

Not that I’m opposed to red, white, and blue in July, but summer in Boston puts me more in mind of red, yellow, and orange. Popsicles, sunburn, sand–perhaps a sultry reading.

So meet me at Middlesex Lounge on Tuesday, July 22, at 7pm. I’ll bring the entertainment: Jeremy will bring the fiction; Amy will bring the non-fiction; Nicole will bring the poetry; and Daniel will bring the confessional tale.

Can’t wait to see you there—

Where Am I?
