Genesee Reading Series – Ralph Black & Al Abonado

May 8, 2018 @ EST 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Now in its 34th year, the Genesee Reading Series is a smorgasbord for your literary palate. Come every month on the second Tuesday, and by the end of the year, you will have feasted on the work of 24 regional authors (some prominent, some emerging; writers of fiction, poetry, essay, creative nonfiction, memoir). It’s up close and personal in the intimate Performance Space upstairs – stay afterwards and talk to the authors while eating cookies.
