The Haven reading series continues Friday, January 30th at the Cyberpunk Apocalypse, as this trippy poster says:
Reading is free and open to the public, but we’re asking attendees to bring a donation of some kind for the nearby Light of Life mission. This can take the form of cash or material goods (for a full list of what the mission needs right now, check out this page).
The Haven is cooking up a couple other events for the coming months. Info will pop up here as things are finalized so keep your eyes open, and we hope to see you on the 30th!
So we held our first reading at the Cyberpunk Apocalypse and it was awesome! Four great poets read in the newly re-modeled backyard where we had standing room only crowd, with only occasional interruptions from the nearby hospital’s life-flight helicopters.Thanks to everyone who came out, and special thanks to Jason Baldinger, Chelsea Tadeyeske, Edwin R.Perry, and Laura Brun for sharing their words.
Of course, we were too busy enjoying the reading and forgot to take pictures and video to post (we’re still getting the hang of this “promotion and social media” thing), but we’re making plans to have video of our next readings to post on the interwebs. Which segues nicely into: Our upcoming readings!
Tomorrow will be the fundraiser in Nola Speakeasy. Two fantastic readers, delicious wine, and killer apps to enjoy, so come on down to Market Square and check it out.
Our November reading at Cyberpunk Apocalypse is also in the works. It’ll be four fiction writers this time (and we’ll be inside, so those pesky helicopters won’t interrupt us so easily). More details forthcoming on that in the near future.
This Friday, October 17th, at 8:30PM, The Haven will be hosting a poetry reading at the Cyberpunk Apocalypse (1200 Boyle Street). Probably there will be tasty comestibles and alcoholic imbibe-ables, though you can feel free to bring your own. Certainly it’s free and open to the public, so bring your friends!
Our work on the Cyberpunk backyard is close to done. Our renovation of the inside…
…is a work in progress. But that one wall we’ve plastered looks pretty damn good.
