Jazz and Monsters
What a great event last night! Thank you to everyone who came out on a blustery April night to hear local author Bhanu Kapil read from her book, Incubation: A Space for Monsters. The evening began with live jazz music performed by the Ron Holleman Trio -- quite a treat to hear such talented musicians from the comfort of our very own bookstore! Bhanu's reading was intense and lyrical, her brilliant voice drew me in to our warm and cozy place only to have my breath taken away by her narrative. She was lovely and gracious as usual, her presence helped to center us all in the moment -- a warm and crowded push of bodies squeezed into the cafe, seeking refuge from the cold, a strong voice rising above our collective hush ...
For those of you who couldn't make it, please enjoy the photos. Both of Bhanu's books(Vertical Interrogation of Strangers, and Incubation: A Space for Monsters) are available now at Anthology.
