One thing that seems to be synonymous with wintertime is curling up by the fireplace with a good book and a hot drink. Whether or not you actually do this, we can probably all agree that this association is fundamentally winter-y.
However, if you like doing this, or at least like the idea of doing this, then Winter Shorts is for you.
Winter Shorts is the first of a new quarterly literary session hosted by the Quart Short. Quart Short is a small organisation dedicated to hosting literary salons throughout Adelaide to showcase the written works of local writers. This July, their first event is coming to the Bibliotheca Bar and Book Exchange.
This coming Tuesday, July 5th, Quart Short and The Bibliotheca Bar will feature the new stories and poems of established and emerging Adelaide writers, Benjamin Chehade, Merran Jones, Gay Lynch, Allee Richards, and Anita Sanders, as well as co-founders Brooker and Thomas. Their works will be bought to life by professional actors, Patrick Frost, Claire Glenn, Elliot Howard, Tamara Lee, Brittany Plummer and Lucy Slattery. Readings will be separated by acoustic folk performances by Adelaide singer-songwriter, Garden Ruin.
The Bibliotheca Bar and Book Exchange offers a selection of bar foods and fine cocktails, providing the opportunity to complete that picture-perfect winter night with a hot drink (or a whisky.)
The night begins at 7PM, with a $5 entry fee at the door. If you miss this session, have no fear... there will surely be more to come.
