The Open Book Author Cabaret a literary evening with a social twist. We launched this event in 2018, and it has been a huge hit! If you haven’t been to one yet, here’s what it is: It’s a cabaret authorfest, where a roster of talented authors willl take the mic to share their work. Thoughout the evening, you’ll hear readings in a variety of genres. In the setting of this beautiful historic stone church, which hosts numerous concerts, the venue will be set up nightclub style, and you’ll have a chance to chat and mix and mingle, interspersed with lively literary readings! This event is adult-only and BYO. Pretend you’re going to a picnic at the Mann Music Center and bring some goodies to enjoy while you listen to talented author perform their work!
