Members of the NorthSide Writers Group took a summer hiatus, did not meet in July or August. Our September meeting was something of a reunion, full of tales of our writing and gardening and community exploits over the summer. Thus the theme for our fall reading.

The evening's agenda:

6:00 Gallery opens with food and drink available

6:30 Reading commences

8:00 Open reading for audience members

8:15 More conversation and food/drink

Free and open. Everyone welcome. Bring two friends.

Humor is our way of defending ourselves from life's absurdities by thinking absurdly about them.

Some of us may have had this notion of Lewis Mumford's in mind as we prepared for our fall reading. Several readers made us laugh out loud. Not a usual occurrence for our semi-annual readings, but a welcome one.

The group was small, intimate, but everyone there was completely there, present, giving their energy and support to making the evening ring with ideas, images, and laughter.

You can always tell, when most folks hang around for an hour after the event, talking with the writers and with each other, something good transpired as those words many of us worked long and hard to form were heard.
