Hello True Beliebers,
As the seasons transition, so do we. Michelle has decided to take a well deserved break from our little thread on the web, and so you’re stuck with me. While you can still expect recaps and previews, I also promise to try and figure out how to inject these posts with cat gifs and almost assuredly more typeos.
As for our recap: October marked our one-year anniversary, and you all continue to come out and support our series. We love you from the bottom of our bookish hearts. Dave K, Adina Ferguson, Bernard Haske, and Analysis The Poet crushed it, dust it, and put it on a shelf for you admire on your coffee break. I don’t know what happened to that sentence. Check out the photos below, and the November preview after.
We’ll be back at Charmington’s on Howard for another wonderful night of Writers & Words on November 10 at 7 pm. Our featured readers are:
