5/2 Rewind Reading Series @ Brillobox

Posted in Events with tags , , , , , , , on April 25, 2019 by 6GPress

8PM THURSDAY…

The REWIND Reading Series is back at it again.

WHAT IS REWIND?
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 nostalgia. In other words, it takes guts, yo.

Brave presenters this round:

Kris Collins
Deena November
Janette Schafer
Sarah Shotland
Meghan Tutolo (host)

Do you have an idea for REWIND? Message Meghan Tutolo a brief bit about what you want to share and why you want to share it.

Don’t forget to join the REWIND Reading Series group for news on events and calls for readers. ✨
