Book readings are typically stuffy affairs .  But there is nothing stuffy about this evening with the authors.

From a cat burglar to a Cajun writer, to a man who wanders in off the street and insists on reading to the group there’s nothing typical about these authors

Some of the readings start out serious but change rapidly  to humorous tone . Others like the man who does his entire reading speaking some unintelligible language is laugh out loud funny from the very first sound.

My high school English literature class was nothing like this .  Maybe if it had been I would’ve read more

There’s a little bit of language  it may offend some in the style of the comedy is probably not terribly entertaining for young children . For the adults in the audience however this is a delightful hour of gentle humor and marked contrast to some of the broad physical comedy you’ll find throughout the festival
