MONTCLAIR, NJ - Halfway There, Montclair’s literary authors’ reading series, will hold its next reading on Monday, January 9th at the Red Eye Café in Montclair.
The evening will feature a line-up of local and visiting authors Alice Elliott Dark, Elisabeth Egan, Elizabeth Onusko, and Matthew Thorburn.
Doors open at 6:30 for coffee and book buying courtesy of Watchung Booksellers. Readings will begin at 7pm followed by an audience Q&A.
Halfway There is a quarterly event that brings together established and emerging voices, as well as local and visiting writers of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Founded in 2016 a year by area local and writer Apryl Lee and writer and NJ native Nicole Haroutunian, the series has proven to be an exciting addition to Montclair's vibrant artistic community. In the first year, Halfway There hosted a diverse range of writers at four events, bringing in a standing-room-only house to the Red Eye Café. In addition, a special “pop-up” reading took place at The Montclair Art Museum to showcase six local, emerging authors in conjunction with National Poetry Month. The enthusiasm and support of the community has been fantastic.
