Introducing the Fair Weather Reading Series!

Hello Friends and Family,

Thank you so much for bearing with us here at Casa Libre during our restructuring and extended summer closure. You'll notice the "Save the Dates" over there on the right ------->
These are the confirmed first three readings of our brand new Fair Weather Reading Series, which will be held in the outdoor courtyards of Casa Libre. This series celebrates LGBTQ writers, female writers, writers of color, emerging writers, and other underrepresented groups. Everyone is welcome to attend! We will hold readings once a month on Friday or Saturday nights and host occasional workshops taught by our readers at FLUXX up the block.

More about the series:

Sometimes there will be music. Sometimes there will be dancing. Sometimes there will be video. Sometimes there will be swimming. Sometimes there will be surprises. Sometimes there will be raffles. Sometimes there will be fancy food. Sometimes there will be fancy drinks. Sometimes it will rain and you should bring an umbrella. Sometimes it will be chilly and you should bring a blanket. It is called the Fair Weather Reading Series for all of these reasons and more.
