Lucas Mangum’s Awesome Reading Fest – IV

For several months now, writers in the Doylestown, PA area have been gathering to read their work at the Awesome Reading Fests organized by Lucas Mangum.

I met Lucas online, on Facebook to be more precise, and attended my first meeting last June, not sure if I would gather the courage to read in front of my peers. But the friendly atmosphere soon convinced me to do so.

That positive experience encouraged me to return this past Thursday to read my work and to listen to other talented writers read theirs.

It has been a great experience for me, one I highly recommend if you’re a writer, and even if you are not, for you don’t have to participate to attend the event. Everybody is welcome.

And in the meantime, check these pictures I took on Thursday December 8.






Thank you so much to Lucas for organizing the event and to the Doylestown BookShop for generously lending us the space.
