The National Writers Union will be hosting a reading and open mic on Monday, December 19, starting at 6:00 p.m. at Bookmans on Grant in Tucson. This month Susan Feathers will be the featured reader and will be reading from her just published novel, Threshold (Fireship Press). Set in the near future, Threshold is a novel of speculative fiction that explores the dramatic effects of climate change in Tucson. Susan is a writer and educator who writes about our relationships in nature and in human community. Her career in education included directing environmental education programs during which she developed her passion for interpreting science to the public. Her nonfiction has been published in Hope Beneath Our Feet (2011) – an anthology of essays edited by Martin Keogh and published by North Atlantic Press, Song of Ourselves (2015) edited by Blue Heron Book Works, and in magazines and journals (SEJ Journal, Outlook, and Pensacola Magazine).
The open mic is for spoken word only, but is open to all forms of spoken word (fiction, essays, poetry, articles, polemics, etc.). So bring something to read!
The event, which will start at 6 p.m., will be held in the community room of Bookmans Entertainment Exchange at Grant and Campbell in Tucson (1930 E. Grant Rd.), which is in the back of the store behind the children’s literature section. There is ample free parking.
