A Celebration of our State’s Big Appetite for Literature brought to you by Writing Workshops Dallas and Gemini Ink.
Zoom Meetings Every Two Weeks @ 7pm CST: April 29, May 13, May 27, & June 10
You’re stuck at home, entrenched in front of the TV. You’re glued to your smart devices and Twitter is blowing up in front of your eyes and you can’t run and you can’t hide from the ever-pervading end of the world that’s being shot directly through the air on invisible beams and straight into your brain. But: you can UNPLUG from the outside world and JOIN us at The Big Texas Read. As featured in Poets&Writers, The Dallas Morning News, and the San Antonio Express-News, we’ll be reading ONE work of prose or poetry written by a Texas author every 1-2 months from now until the bug is squashed! We’ll be with you from page one to “THE END” with our Zoom author chats and Q&A’s, scheduled every two weeks. Think of it as a big virtual book club, only you get to stay home, mix a cocktail, eat a big piece of chocolate cake, and snuggle up on the sofa.
We’re excited to partner with Interabang Books in Dallas and The Twig Book Shop in San Antonio for The Big Texas Read. You can order your book directly from either bookstore and have it delivered to your front door!
Keep a lookout for giveaways that come with being a book lover and taking part in The Big Texas Read, from free online WWD and Gemini Ink workshops to a manuscript consultation with David himself. Help us celebrate the diverse literary voices of our robust state, and we’ll join you in making the most of these unexpected times by keeping you company with great Texas authors and like-minded fellow readers. In these unsettling times, what could be better than a good book, a dynamic discussion, and meeting new friends? What else is there than that? What else will bring us closer together?
