The first Sarabande Reading Series of 2010 will be held at the 21C Museum Hotel on Monday, January 25 at 7:30 p.m. Poets Sandra Meek and Kristi Maxwell will read from their works, followed by a performance by folk singer Lacey Guthrie. And, did I mention that this event is free? You are familiar with Sarabande Books, right? It’s a local, nonprofit literary press that was founded in 1994. They publish poetry and short fiction, two genres that tend to get overlooked by mainstream publishers. And if you haven’t been to 21C Museum Hotel downtown, that’s reason enough to go to this free event. The art gallery, not to mention the red penguins poised on the outside of the building, makes for some great conversation. While you’re there, stop in at Proof on Main, the restaurant at 21C.
