Photos, videos, gratitude

Monday night was witness to another splendid round of Literary Firsts. I think I said so twice during the evening–because it’s always true–but it really was so great to be in that room.

I am so grateful for how funny and moving and smart these readers were, and equally as grateful for the appreciative crowd. If you weren’t able to make it, you can check out the photos and videos below for the evening’s highlights.

I’m endlessly thankful to Kim, Anne, Michelle, and Molly for their readings. If you click each of their names to watch their respective videos, you’ll know why.

Two days!
