Dear Hillside Federation Friends,
From our friends and neighbors, Alison Turner & Lou Mathews:
An early heads up. Thanks to Suzanne Lummis, Alison and I will be reading at Beyond Baroque on Saturday, March 18th, 8 p.m., the day after St. Patrick’s.
This is a rare sighting. Alison reads about every three years. This also marks the debut of Alison’s new chapbook, What To Do In An Emergency.
The Beyond Baroque Calendar description is below. Hope to see you there.
