An intimate reading

Thanks to all who came to Chad Davidson's reading. Chad is so talented at making his audience feel like a part of the reading rather than "an audience". I thoroughly enjoyed it. For those of you who missed it we hope to see you at The Savannah book Festival and specifically at Dr. Nagueyalti Warren's reading, which we are sponsoring. There are many other great poets reading and you can get all the details at

Here are some pics from Davidson's reading, enjoy!
