First Friday / Wide Open Mic: New Year, New Words, January 5

Hosted by: Norm Davis

Writers & Books is proud to participate in First Friday each month. We pick a theme and put out snacks, you come and enjoy our building. Peruse the bookstore, pick up a catalog and participate in whatever free themed event we have that evening. Wide Open Mic, Rochester’s longest running open mic, kicks off at 7:00 in our Performance Space with host Norm Davis.#FirstFridayROC
