FALL READING: NorthSide Writers Group

NorthSide Writers Group offers an evening of prose, poetry, memoir and hip hop. Special guests include writers from the Hmong American Institute for Learning. The theme for the evening's reading is Memory / Memories.

An open mike session will follow the formal reading. Audience members are invited to bring work - their own or of a favorite author - to read. Five minute limit for each reader.

Free and open. Everyone welcome.

Yellow leaves blowing along the sidewalk... Darkness falling earlier each evening... In autumn our thoughts turn nostalgic.

Perfect setting for an evening of prose, poetry, hip-hop and memoir focused on the concept of memory / memories. A small but attentive and appreciative audience was treated to pieces ranging back in time to the early fifties and as recent as the 35W bridge collapse in August. In addition to the regulars, guest readers from the Hmong American Institute for Learning and from our local Northside community read their work.

Everyone went home thinking writing is a good thing to do, and to share.
