September 2011 Open Reading Review

Filed under: Open Reading Minutes — show1miyamura @ 12:03 pm


Dear Nagoya Writes,

Our fall season got to a good start.  I was a bit apprehensive before arriving at Mondo’s after receiving a handful of
cancellation e-mails.  What a pleasant turnout.  And moving works at that.

It seems that the word about our Open Reads is getting around.  New faces come to join our group each time. Thanks

Readings:

Paul Binford ( USA )
prose  ~ The Shademakers  ~
the crow … a court jester marking the proceedings of the mock ceremony.

Iain Maloney ( Scotland )
prose ~ Fuji Rock -Ever After ~
That’s what Aya-chan does, she repeats things.

John Parsons ( USA )
prose ~ The Bookstore ~
Everything in the store was stolen.

Vash Bandy ( USA )
prose ~ Ten Years ~
The universe’s tendency is towards disorder makes death an ordinary tragedy and life an ordinary miracle.

Albert Sussler ( USA )
prose ~ The Chicken Dance ~
The chicken dance … She warned ‘it might get noisy.’
poetry ~ A Library of Concern ~
As their hopes crumbled like cakes of dried mud.
prose ~ A mom in Miyagi living Fukushima Hell ( from Fukushima Diary ) ~
I am exhausted mentally and physically due to a succession of unlikely events.

The Next Open Readings is scheduled for October 23rd. from 4:00- 7:00 P.M.

Cheers to Jose and Mike for providing the wonderful site for our Open Readings and workshop.

Growing ideas, in a supportive environment, that is what we are all about.
Help to spread the word.
