Next TNY Reading: March 17th

Thanks to all who came out to the February 17th TNY Presents reading. I'm always impressed how a great audience appears out of thin air at exactly 8:32 for a reading scheduled for 8:00pm. The tardy crowd didn't actually miss anything but enjoyed poems by Jason Baldinger & Justin Hopper, and stories by Sherrie Flick.

Please stay tuned for bios from our readers for Thursday, March 17th: Dave Newman will be reading fiction while Jim Cvetic will read poems; Bob Pajich writes both poetry and prose, so he'll surprise us (or at least, me).
