Those of you who weren’t able to make it to Monday’s reading can now catch up on what you missed–videos! Those of you who were there can relive it and remember the parts we left unrecorded.
And, for everyone else, photos:
Josh Cook reads his fiction.
Michael Lynch reads his poems.
Meg Stone reads excerpt from her memoir, Another Chance at Home.
Steven Lee Beeber reads his confessional essay.
Thanks to Josh, Meg, Michael, and Steven for reading and to the crowd for always being so appreciative.
News on the October reading is on the way!

It’s hard to believe that almost a month has already passed since the last Literary Firsts, but that means there’s only two more months until the next reading.
You won’t want to miss it when Josh Cook reads his fiction, Michael Lynch shares his poetry, Meg Stone reads selections from her memoir, and Steven Lee Beeber trusts us with his confessional reading.
Join us at 7pm on Monday, July 18 at the Middlesex Lounge. It promises to be a grand evening.
