May 2011 Open Reading Review

Filed under: Open Reading Minutes — show1miyamura @ 1:09 pm

Thank you all for letting me know your plans. I was worried
the Open Reading would get off the ground,
so many cancellations the day before and of our Reading day.

Yet it did, and it flew.
New voices joining our team of writers, made it so.


Tim Lennane (USA) return
Jokes < Shoganai>
Howmachi maguro ikura?

Ernie Schaal ( USA )
Prose < Funeral of an Expat, Scene 1>
So was your sister a good writer?

Joe Sichi ( USA )
Poem < If I were to give death a color >
The fern lives at the bottom of the forest
Poem < Cure for Insomnia >
Run outside as if there had been an earthquake.
Poem by Pablo Neruda
Your kiss sent me into exile.

Lain Maloney ( Scotland ) debute
Prose < Honda’s tale >
Honda took to computers like a politician to lying.

Albert Sussler ( USA )
Prose <  In the Wake of the Tsunami >
This is the great disaster of our age and I want to be
part of the recovery.

Camilo Omana ( USA )
Prose < Whose Woods >
He flicked the cigarette, the red cinders became fireflies
that flew into the back seat.
Prose < Tropic of Cancer > by Henry Miller
There is not a crumb of dirt anywhere, nor a chair misplaced.
We are all alone here and we are dead.

Coming up:
The Next Open Readings is scheduled for June 12th. from 4:00- 6:00 + P.M.
With the strong support of the staff of Mondo, we have a new location for June.
Mondo Lounge is a quiet second story book story and lounge.
just two blocks from Kamimaizu station, Nagoya.
For direction: click here.

Mondo has also created a face book event for our meeting.
I am really happy at the upward trend of readers that have been
joining the ‘Open Readings’ this year. Each month new voices are joining our
group, adding with veterans, more depth to our Readings.
This last Reading also had many guests as listeners adding a cheer atmosphere.

Thank you all for bringing life to our Open Readings.

Help to spread the word.

Albert Sussler
