What a night last Monday was.
Anthony D’Aries read about teaching in prisons and building Boston and Jack Nicholson. Michael Thurston read about cat violence, among other things. Danielle Jones-Pruett read about feathers and blush and bicycles. And Sarah Sweeney read about picking up her life and moving it, about falling in and out of love, about tension and release.
Watch the videos here.

Thanks to Anthony, Michael, Danielle, and Sarah for reading, thanks to Randolph Pfaff for taking photos and videos, and thanks to everyone who came out to listen!
Sarah Sweeney is a stolen breath.
