News & Notes

The next LIT UP! is scheduled for 7-9 p.m. on 21 October at Kean Coffee. It will likely be the last for this year. The flyers are available here (1-up and 2-up), and the Facebook event is up. The current lineup:

  • Maria Alexander, reading from Mr. Wicker (fantasy)
  • Frank Pray, reading “Family Honor” (political/family drama)
  • Heather Freidman Rivera, reading from Quiet Water (supernatural romance)

We’re still looking for a venue for LIT UP North! in the Fullerton/Placentia/Brea area, perhaps something along the lines of the Kean Coffee model. If you know of such a thing, please reply in the comments.
