First Chapters with Ender Baskan, Amy Bodossian & Wayne Marshall
On the first Friday night of each month, Brunswick Bound Upstairs hosts a night of local author readings.
It's your chance to discover a new author and for authors to discover new audiences.
In February the event will feature authors Ender Baskan (A Portrait of Alice as a Young Man), Amy Bodossian (Wide Open) and Wayne Marshall (Shirl).
Each author will read from their work and there will be a short Q&A afterwards.
Light refreshments will be served at the event.
