Author Tony Horwitz will emcee the Bunch of Grapes Bookstore’s open mic night for writers, the final such event of the season, on Tuesday, March 23. Anyone currently working on a novel, short story, poetry or essay is invited to read for five minutes. This is an opportunity for writers to share a selection from a work in progress and for the Vineyard community to come out and hear what their neighbors are working on behind closed doors.

There will be a sign up sheet posted at 7 p.m. at the Bunch of Grapes; the readings start at 7:15. The first eight people to sign up will be the readers for that evening. Everyone welcome; you do not need to have had your work published.

After the readings are completed, there will be time for feedback and questions.

For more information, please call Kate Feiffer at 508-696-9240. The Bunch of Grapes, a year-round, independent,locally-owned Island bookstore for more than 40 years, in located on Main street in Vineyard Haven.
