Readers’ Open Mic

Do you love to read aloud with expression, or listen to someone reading? Here’s your chance to read aloud for all to enjoy (5 minutes max), every third Wed of the month. You’re encouraged to pick a piece that resonates with the monthly theme.

August’s (optional) theme is “Potluck Picnic.” Read or perform whatever poem, story, book, play, or song you find tastiest by anyone—or your own original work.
Teens and adults, and readers at all levels of English, are all welcome. For more information, email Lise LKreps@gibsons.bclibrary.ca
In-person space is limited: contact the Library to register. Also accessible live on Zoom from the Library’s website.
