Cracked Walnut Reading Series Prepares for Another Season

The Cracked Walnut Reading Series is preparing for another round of readings, and big things are in store.

The Cracked Walnut Reading series takes place in innovative locations througout the Twin Cities. Readers tend to address the space which adds to the unique flavor of each reading. Some examples of past locations include The Braemer Skating Arena, Local D'lish, The Midtown Global Market, and the Washburn McGreavy Hillside Funeral Chapel.

Cracked Walnut and Red Bird Chapbooks would like to invite you to our picnic fundraiser where we will celebrate the great work of the poets and artists who contributed to Red Bird's Broadside series. Featured Readers will be Kelly Hansen Maher, Donna Isaac, Jamie Lynn Buehner, Shelly Love, Chris Title, Wendy Brown-Baez, Didi Koka, Jenny McDougal, Sandy Beach.  The reading itself will start at 4:30 at the Amphitheater, and we have rented out the close by picnic shelter for the rest of the evening. We will have some simple refreshments and appetizers available and invite you to bring finger foods that you are willing to share.

This will also be a fundraising event for Cracked Walnut and Redbird, and there will be items for sale. We are planning on becoming registered a Non-profit company.  Your kind donations, either cash or check, will help us with this endeavor.
