Living Room Takes a Winter Break–Ring in the Season With Us on December 15th!

We know how it is. It’s cold.  All you want to do on a Tuesday night is get under a blanket and drink hot tea. Well, let me tell you…It’s warm and toasty in the SPLAB Living Room! Columbia City Cinema’s 2nd floor lounge space is cozy and bright, with the kind of well-worn sofas that invite you to take a load off  and share some hot writing on a cold night.  

December 15th is our last Tuesday gathering until February. Yep, even SPLAB takes a winter break.  So come on out and give us a good holiday send-off this Tuesday!  Bring a piece of writing by you or someone else to share with the group.  We look forward to a fun night before we all rush off to our respective family obligations.

Spring 2010 is going to be busy! We’ve got Michael McClure coming to town and the Allen Ginsberg Memorial Poetry Marathon happening too.  Watch the SPLAB blog for all the latest.  See you Tuesday!
