There's nothing quite like basking under the pinkish glow of the neon sign at Dock Street Cannery while world-renowned writers read their own words aloud to an intimate crowd of about 50 people, all sipping handmade cocktails or handcrafted beer.
We tried this for the first time in March for the first of our #CreativeAtTheCannery series, a close, if not more broody, cousin of the on-going #ComedyAtTheCannery events, and it was so wonderful that we're making it official, with more dates to be added throughout the year.
This time, our May reading will feature novelist Asali Solomon, translator Elisabeth Jaquette, and playwright/actor James Ijames, and will be hosted again by Philadelphia-based writers Matt Jakubowski and Christine Kendall.
Doors open at 5pm for drinks + snacks, and the readings start at 7pm. Come early to secure a seat!
Date: May 16, 2018 7:00 PM-8:30 PM
