Open Mic + Riverby Books = Fun for All

This sounds fun, and a nice excuse to pay a visit to Riverby Books, one of DC’s most charming used bookstores:

A Space Inside will host a multi-genre open mic event on Wednesday, April 28 at 7 p.m . at Riverby Books on Capitol Hill. Readers will include a few series alums, new writers from the neighborhood, and established voices from the DC region. Come to share your own work or just to listen to a diverse set of literary voices. All genres are welcomed--fiction, poetry, nonfiction, drama. Those who would like to read should contact Monica Jacobe (monicafjacobe@usa.net) for details of time constraints, sign-ups, etc.

Firmly in its fifth year, A Space Inside provides a space where developing writers, lesser known voices, and the work better-known writers create between books can be heard. Monthly readings usually alternate between poetry and prose, but all readers are DC-based writers. All readings, which are free and open to the public, are hosted by Riverby Books with a reception following.

Riverby Books is located at 417 East Capitol Street, SE, just north of Eastern Market and four blocks east of the U.S. Capitol. A seller of used and rare books, they are open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and can be reached at (202) 543-4342. Please call for directions, if needed.
