How to Give a Reading You'd
Actually Want to Attend
with Elizabeth Austen
November 13, 7pm

Let's end once and for all the idea that a literary reading is a bore. Learn how to connect with an audience without showboating or betraying what you've brought to the page.

Elizabeth Austen has been connecting audiences with poetry on stage and over the airwaves for more than a decade. She's the author of Every Dress a Decision, a frequent poetry commentator on KUOW, and a dynamic performer of her own and others' poems.
