Pillette Village Reading Series winter season done!

I'd like to thank everyone who participated in the new Pillette Village Reading Series, whether as a featured reader, open mic reader, or audience member. For our first season I consider it a success. The audience has been hit or miss, with some events standing room only, and others that had ten or so people. But who's counting? We are learning and growing. The format may change a bit next season to ensure great attendance at every event. It is incredible to have such support from the local literary community.

Thanks again to our featured readers: David James Brock, Patrick Brode, Julie Cameron Gray, Kate Hargreaves, Debbie Hill, Jim Johnstone, Lenore Langs, Michael Lista, Dorothy Mahoney, Dennis Robillard, Vanessa Shields, Robert Stewart, and Blair Trewartha. And thank you to the presses who worked closely with me to make arrangements and get in touch with authors.

I'd also like to give a big THANK YOU to Aimee Parent Dunn at Palimpsest Press for organizing this event and for having the vision to see it through, and to Nancy at Nancy Johns Gallery. Her space is beautiful! If you are a local, you should definitely go check it out at 4755 Wyandotte St. East.

Here are a couple pictures. I don't have many because, well... I'm not that organized. We'll see you next November!
