LEWISTON, Idaho – The Lewis-Clark State College Center for Arts & History, along with a local writing group Confluence Writers, will hold a Night of Reading open mic night on Friday, April 5, at 6 p.m. at the Center, located at 415 Main St.
The event is free and open to the public and those who wish to read can sign up at the door that night. Writers from the Palouse Writer’s Guild, Idaho Writer’s League and LCSC writing classes are scheduled to attend and give readings.
Organizers plan to hold the event on a quarterly basis during the next year on the first Friday, with future dates to be announced. Debi Fitzgerald, director of the Center and Continuing Education at LCSC, said the future readings will develop around future exhibits at the Center, including the summer exhibit scheduled that will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in Manhattan, N.Y. The January 2020 readings will be related to the Crossroads Smithsonian Exhibit that features the development of rural communities in north central Idaho.
Fitzgerald said the readings are part of the Center’s efforts to broaden the scope of working with artists of various mediums, including writers.
The mission of the Center is to connect campus to community and the world through education and experiences in arts, culture, and the humanities. For more information on Night of Reading at the Center or to sign-up to read in advance, contact [email protected]
