Mignon Khargie emailed us to let us all know about an event happening this Saturday in San Luis Obispo, California.
"Reading In Public (RIP!) was formed to celebrate the written word by way of community performance in public spaces. The project began as a response to the shifting landscape in publishing, and the realization that more and more of us are writing in public, as bloggers and tweeters, for instance. Similarly, we seek to broadcast words in public, through the simple act of contemplative reading on a noisy street corner, or as performance, with readers directly engaging onlookers. Our readers are people of all ages and walks of life who share a passion not only for words, but for story telling. They will pick their own reading materials and craft their own performances. We hope you'll come out and join us wherever you see the Reading Chair. Do bring something to read."
