Thanks to everyone who came out for the launch of the Listen Here! short story reading series last night. And thanks to Troy and everyone at Koffee on Audubon for helping to make it a success. Check out Allan Appel's story "Listen Here! Debuts" (with photos and video) from the New Haven Independent.
A full schedule for Listen Here! can be found on the Arts Council's Facebook page and on the New Haven Review's website.
See you next week at Blue State Coffee for The Impious of the Perverse: High Holidays Special featuring readings of Philip Roth's "The Conversion of the Jews" and Melvin Jules Bukiet's "The Golden Calf and the Red Heifer."
Listen Here! is a collaboration between the Arts Council of Greater New Haven, New Haven Review, New Haven Theater Company, and four area coffeehouses. On Thursday evenings, from 7-8pm, short stories selected by New Haven Review editors are read by local actors. Readings take place on a rotating basis at Blue State Coffee, Koffee on Audubon, Lulu: A European Coffeehouse, and Manjares Fine Pastries (Westville).
