Author Reading Night at the Jitterbug Cafe
Wednesday, September 7, 2016
5:30 – 9:00 p.m.
Jitterbug Cafe, 35 Main Street North, Waterdown, Ontario (Map here.)

Update: Because of a few last-minute cancellations, we have a couple spots open in our line-up for the reading night this Wednesday, Sept 7, at the Jitterbug. This is your chance to practice for when you’re a famous author by reading a short piece (8 minutes absolute maximum) before a supportive audience of your fellow writers, plus friends and family. If you’re interested, email me before Wednesday afternoon at: brianhenry@sympatico.ca ~ Brian

This is the night that graduates of Brian Henry’s writing classes strut their stuff. We’ll have a line-up of the most amazing emerging writers west of Toronto, and they’ll be reading some of the best work you’ll hear this year. This will be a wonderful evening and everyone’s invited Don’t miss it!

Arrive for dinner before 6:00, or if you’re just having a drink or coffee and a snack, please arrive before 6:30. But because they’re opening especially for us, you can’t order just a coffee (or they’ll lose money by hosting us). They have a great menu; check it out here.
The actual readings will start at 6:45. I look forward to seeing you all there!
