In Honor of World Read Aloud Day
March 3rd, 8pm
Free of charge

On Wednesday, March 3 at 8:00 pm, Literal Latte will be have four wonderful writers reading aloud at Think Coffee.

The reading coincides with World Read Aloud Day, a program highlighting the joys of reading to children around the world. What better way to do so than to show them that adults enjoy being read to as well. In the spirit of the day, we have invited a class of second graders to listen. We expect they will be our toughest critics yet.

The reading will feature Ben Miller, Anne Pierson Wiese, Luke Fiske and Maria Terrone.

Luke Fiske has published in Connecticut Review, Georgetown Review, The Painted Bride Quarterly, New Contrast, and in A City Imagined: Cape Town and the Meanings of a Place. He won first prize in the Georgetown Review Contest, and 3rd-place in the Glimmer Train Family Matters Contest. He is finishing a collection of short stories, titled The Vanishing Point, and a novel.

Ben Miller's work can be found in recent or forthcoming issues of The Kenyon Review, AGNI, Alaska Quarterly Review, Ecotone, Raritan and The Antioch Review. His nonfiction has appeared in the Best American Essays anthology, and awards include a creative writing fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Maria Terrone is author of two poetry collections: A Secret Room in Full (Ashland Poetry Press), winner of the McGovern Prize and The Bodies We Were Loaned (The Word Works). She has had work in Poetry, The Hudson Review, Poetry International and more.

Anne Pierson Wiese's first collection, Floating City (Louisiana State University Press) received the Academy of American Poets Walt Whitman Award. Honors include a Fellowship in Poetry from the New York Foundation for the Arts and a "Discovery"/The Nation poetry prize. Poems have been anthologized in Broken Land: Poems of Brooklyn (New York University Press, 2007), Poem in Your Pocket (Harry N. Abrams, 2009), and Token Entry: Poems of the New York City Subway (Smalls Press, 2011).

From 1994-2004, every other month 30,000 copies graced the tables of New York coffeehouses, bookstores and arts organizations. Now it is free online to the world for consumption on laptops in coffeehouses and homes worldwide.

Literal Latte's fifteenth anniversary anthology will be available at the event at a steep discount.
