Have a yen to read your stuff in public? Open Mic Night to be held this Friday at Wellington Square Bookshop

Wellington Square Bookshop, the charming little haven for booklovers and home of the book club I attend, is hosting an Open Mic Night this Friday, April 8, from 7 to 10 p.m. The shop is located in the Eagleview development off Route 100 in Exton.

Perhaps you have some poetry or a story kicking around that you'd like to try out in front of a small and friendly audience ... or a song you've written you'd like to share.

Among those invited to perform are musicians, singer-songwriters, poets, and readers. Sign-up starts at 6:30 p.m. and each slot lasts for about 10 minutes.

The shop provides the necessary mics and amps; you bring instruments of any kind. No worries if you're not looking to perform - you're welcome to just hang out at the coffee bar and watch the performances. BYOB welcome.

Open Mic at Wellington Square Bookshop is held on the second Friday of each month. The next Open Mic Night will be Friday, May 13.

The beautiful poster above right, which I copied from the Wellington Square Facebook page, was designed by Chris Vendrick.
