Announcements at the Gist Street Reading Series

Reading at Gist Street is like reading in your best friend’s living room. The audiences are warm, responsive, intelligent and fun. I read at Gist Street with Ann Pancake (Read her new novel, Strange as This Weather Has Been!), and it felt almost as good as reading down home in the mountains. The Gist Street Reading Series is an invaluable contribution to the literary arts in this country.
