Literature

The Literature Committee presents contemporary authors working in a variety of genres. Recent highlights have included Brian Jay Jones, reading from his biography of Jim Henson; portrait photographer Mariana Cook, with her collection, Justice: Faces of the Human Rights Revolution; and a launch reading for “The Book of Scented Things: 100 Poems about Perfume.”

Typically, we host a spring season consisting of three events (February, March, April) and a fall season consisting of three events (September, October, December). Each event takes place on a Tuesday or a Wednesday, and starts at 7 PM. Please check the ACW Calendar for specific dates. These events are free and open to the public, and no reservations are required.
