8PM THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20….

The debut of the REWIND Reading Series.

REWIND is what happens when people share their angsty adolescent selves on a stage to a room full of adults. These are real people sharing their real, unedited journals, poems, songs, etc. for laughter, tears and unabashed in their own nostalgia. In other words, it takes guts, yo.

The brave readers this round:

Kelly Andrews
Lori Jakiela
Andrea Laurion
Brian Nuckols
Bob Walicki
Meghan Tutolo (host)

Do you have an idea for REWIND? Message Meghan Tutolo, but either way, be sure to join the REWIND Reading Series group for news on events and calls for readers.

We’re hoping to make REWIND a seasonal thing, but it’s dependent on its turnout. SO TELL YOUR FRENZ!
