The reading series, Texts Benedict, sponsored by Burlesque Press, had its first meeting on Saturday.
Tawni Waters read from her new novel, Beauty of the Broken (in the taxi after the reading, the driver asked, “What gets broken?” — she replied, “Everything”), Erin Elizabeth Smith (of Sundress Publications) and UTK’s creative writing director Marilyn Kallet read new poems, while Ira Sukrungruang shared a memoir of weight and loss. The Knoxville restaurant Plaid Apron provided cheese plates, wine, and caramelised bacon-flavoured popcorn.
A lovely time.
