The Return of Brews + Prose!

Our friends at Brews + Prose are re-starting up their acclaimed reading series at Market Garden Brewery on Wednesday September 15th at 7 p.m.

The following is from their Facebook event page:

Brews + Prose is back! And for now, like so many other things, Brews + Prose, will look a little different. We will be gathering upstairs on the Market Garden Brewpub Patio in an effort to spread out in the fresh air.

On September 15, we will be hosting three incredible readers:

Claire Luchette has published work in the Virginia Quarterly Review, the Kenyon Review, Ploughshares, and Granta. A 2020 National Endowment for the Arts Fellow, Luchette graduated from the University of Oregon MFA program and has received grants and scholarships from MacDowell, Yaddo, the Millay Colony for the Arts, Lighthouse Works, the Elizabeth George Foundation, and the James Merrill House. Agatha of Little Neon is Luchette’s first novel.

Dotun Akintoye is a Nigerian American writer from Philadelphia. His work has appeared in outlets like The Los Angeles Review of Books and O, The Oprah Magazine. He is currently a staff writer at ESPN.

Natasha Oladokun is a poet and essayist. She holds fellowships from Cave Canem, the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, the Jackson Center for Creative Writing, Twelve Literary Arts, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she was the inaugural First Wave Poetry fellow. Her work has appeared in the American Poetry Review, The Academy of American Poets, Harvard Review Online, Kenyon Review Online, and elsewhere. You can read her regular column The PettyCoat Chronicles—on pop culture and period dramas—at Catapult. She is Associate Poetry Editor at storySouth, and currently lives in Madison, WI.

We are hoping to find a way to safely host more great writers in the coming months, and we hope you'll be there with us.
