I was so thrilled to have another tremendous group of writers for Literary Firsts on Monday. In the immortal words of J.F. Lynch, “If you weren’t there, if you didn’t see it, you missed out.”

However, through the magic of video and the internet, now you can pretend you were there when Michael Hoerman, Terri Trespicio, Matthew Salesses, and Liam Day kicked off 2012 with a bang.

First, the still images:

Michael Hoerman reads his poetry.

Terri Trespicio reads her essay, "Unhitched but Not Unhappy"

Matthew Salesses reads excerpts from "The Last Repatriate"

Liam Day reads his confessional essay.

And now, the moving pictures.

See you in April!
