Open Mic Night, Thursday, February 12, 2009 Honors John Updike

Join lovers of language for Second Thursday Open Mic Night at Boyertown's Hard Bean Cafe, East Philadelphia Avenue, beginning at 7:00, to honor Reading, PA's favorite son, writer John Updike. To honor Updike's passing, bring a short (five minute) piece to read that highlights his extraordinary ability to describe ordinary things. Updike's American realism is often rooted in Berks County settings. 

The evening is free and open to the public and encourages new and experienced writers to read original poetry and prose. Contact Jodi Corbett at Second Thursday is supported, in part, by Berks Bards, Arts and Activities Alliance, a committee of Building a Better Boyertown, and Hard Bean Cafe.
