Join us for readings by local authors at 7pm next Thursday, June 12th. Mary Gustafson, Elizabeth Harmon, Rick Copper and Ivan Ewert will be reading from their works as well as hosting a discussion on writing, publishing and whatever else you would like to talk about!
And, Get Lit(erary) is on Thursday, June, 19th, also at 7. We will be reading from “The Admirable Chrichton,” by J. M. Barrie, the author of Peter Pan. Act One is set in Loam Hall, the household of Lord Loam, a British peer, Crichton being his butler. Loam considers the class divisions in British society to be artificial. He promotes his views during tea-parties where servants mingle with his aristocratic guests, to the embarrassment of all. Crichton particularly disapproves, considering the class system to be “the natural outcome of a civilised society”.

Art Bra Austin is a charity fundraiser like no other. Every year, Austin’s talented community of artists, designers, and jewelers submit their original works of wearable art to be showcased by a dynamic group of Art Bra Austin Models – all breast cancer survivors and clients of BCRC. This feisty group of BCRC clients reflect the diversity of the thousands of women we serve annually.
By supporting me, you will ensure the next woman diagnosed with breast cancer has the knowledge that she’s not alone and the support she needs to make it through.
