"Word On The Street" Will Celebrate Authors, Poetry and Performance Art

There will be a Friends Of The Library Book Sale, authors’ readings and book signings, but the highlight of the event will be an Open Mic Night. Anyone (with advance registration) will be able to get their moment in the limelight and wow the audience with their stand-up about any small town.


If You’d Like To Exhibit, Read, Perform or Step Up To The Mic…

Fill out one of the appropriate registration forms attached (here and here!) and email to: bob.s@theb2bgroup.com. We’re seeking local writers, performers and story tellers who might be interested in promoting their work through a reading or book signing. Actors workshops and children’s theater groups are also encouraged to perform a short skit from their repertoire.


Register Today—And Spread The Word!

Opportunities to bask in the creative spotlight don’t come along very often. Don’t let this experience pass you by and feel free to share this email with another literary aficionado waiting to take the stage—and the town—by storm!
