This is to give you early notice…………
On Monday night, October 8th we are having a very special Moonday West reading, as we will have achieved our tenth year. We began in 2002 as a modest reading in Seattle's Best in Santa Monica, continued on at Village Books in the Palisades, survived the death of the beloved bookstore and moved forward proudly (and a little sadly) at a beautiful chapel/reading space just down the street. In 2011 we started Moonday East. It has been no mean feat to keep a reading going this long, especially with the quality and care that are known to Moonday.
We are planning a celebration at our regular reading at Aldersgate/Buerge Chapel and this is the first announcement. First of all we have two wonderful features, Peter Serchuk, recently on Writer's Almanac, and Ruth Thompson, brilliant seasoned poet, who hails from New York and Hawaii. And we are giving a little extra time in the open reading to R.G. Cantalupo, who was one of the founding members of Moonday…and that's a whole story in itself.
We are especially hoping to have our Moonday regulars come and celebrate with us in the open reading. Many of you have been with us for many years, especially the years at Village Books. It will be wonderful to see you all again.
The reading starts at 7:30 p.m. at Aldersgate Retreat House in the Buerge Chapel: 925 Haverford Ave, Pacific Palisades. There is an open reading; email firstname.lastname@example.org to beat the crowd.
