If you haven’t made it out to Pawtuxet for the monthly Lively Literati gathering, you have another chance coming up on Thursday night, Feb. 26. This month’s authors are Gail Eastwood (The Captain’s Dilemma), Sara Low (A Guide’s Guide to Fly Fishing Mistakes), and Adele Bourne, who will be reading from her husband’s poetry collection, To Make a Thing of Air.
The event is free, and the location — The Elephant Room — is a great backdrop for local authors and their works. Readings start at 6:30 p.m., with the chance for audience members to share their works afterwards.
