Volume Presents: Leland Cheuk, Elissa Altman, & Shira Dentz
Saturday, October 12, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Volume Reading Series, hosted by Hallie Goodman and Dani Grammerstorf French, happens on the second Saturday of every month. We feature an hour of exceptional prose and poetry readings (7-8), followed by a killer DJ set (8-9) to warm up the room. Meet your favorite writer, get your book signed, bust a move and/or stare at the floor awkwardly. We provide the soundtrack.
This event is always free. Save your $$ for books and beer!
