Reading series official announcement!

Chin Music: The Pacific Standard Reading Series

An Evening with Poets Joshua Mehigan, George Green, and Katy Resch
Thursday, November 15th, 8PM

Please join us for opening night of Chin Music, Brooklyn's new reading series at Pacific Standard bar in Park Slope. Established and rising poets and writers from New York and beyond will be featured during each of our seasons – one each winter and another in late spring. Writers featured this first season (running November to December, and then – after a brief hiatus – January to February) include Kimiko Hahn, Roger Sedarat, Lynn Aarti Chandhok, and John Brehm. Readings will be held on Thursdays at 8pm, and feature three readers each night. The series is curated by Colin Cheney and the co-owner of Pacific Standard, John Rauschenberg.

Located on Fourth Avenue in Brooklyn, near the Atlantic/Pacific station, Pacific Standard is a literary bar serving up over a dozen West Coast microbrews on tap (as well as choice selections from small and local breweries), a fine collection of wines, and tasty cheeses and meats.

What an interesting way to get people interested in reading! Book trailers are like movie trailers, but for books! You can find them all over the internet now, but here is a site that's featuring them on YouTube.
