Please consider bringing canned goods or cold weather clothing/blankets to donate to the Post 134 food & clothing pantry, which serves local veterans, houseless and anyone in need.

***We’re switching things up a bit to make room for more voices. This month’s event will include an open mic, in addition to our curated readers. If you have words to share about your grief, we welcome you.***

Open mic signups begin at 6:30, readings start at 7pm.
First priority will be given to those who’ve not previously shared at one of our events. You’ll have roughly 4 minutes. Please come prepared to provide a short 1-2 sentence bio.
