100 Stories for Haiti

Something special is happening at the Bongo After Hours Theatre tonight. The spotlight will be on a portion of Nashville's artistic community that perhaps flies under the typical music radar - Nashville's local creative writers. The event is called 100 Stories for Haiti, and it is a celebration for the release of the book under the same name, and the $6 suggested cover will benefit Haiti earthquake relief through the Red Cross. One of the stories in this collection was written by one of Nashville's own, Nina Adel. She will be reading that story, entitled "Necklace," during the event. There will also be a handful of other local writers reading mostly original work. As much as the event is to benefit Haiti and to celebrate this book, it will also be an opportunity to celebrate local talent. Some writers will be reading pieces about social awareness, but others will simply be reading pieces they would like to share. I personally know the vast majority of the writers who will be sharing their work, and I was privileged enough to see "Necklace" in its early, workshop stages, and I assure you, musicians aren't the only artists in the city worth noticing. So come by tonight and get a cup of coffee downstairs and listen to a few stories and poems. I'll certainly be there - I'm fortunate enough to be on the list to read.
