Bethel Connecticut’s Seraphemera Books and their Garbanzo Literary Journal, in conjunction with independent bookseller Byrd’s Books are excited to announce Garbanzofest 3 - A Celebration of Words - a community and family friendly party for the release of Garbanzo Literary Journal (book three).
Taking place on Saturday February 22nd, 2014 journeying from 12pm (noon) until 4pm-ish, at Byrd’s Books at 126 Greenwood Avenue in Bethel CT, the event will feature live readings of stories and poems from a number of the authors published in Garbanzo, a number of authors reading their works via pre-recorded video or audio, an open-mic for anybody who would like to read their work, a writing workshop whose goal is to create a piece of writing that will allow each participant to be a part of (and have their name published with) a piece of writing that will appear in Garbanzo Literary Journal (book four), all topped off with the musical talents of local guitarist/singer/songwriter/banjo-player/all-around artist Lys Guillorn (http://www.lysguillorn.com).
And LOTS of Hummus...
This is a free, all-ages invited event, open to all interested in continuing the traditions of storytelling (which means both telling a tale as well as being the ears interested in listening - as all stories need an audience), anybody who is interested in hearing good local music that both moves the soul and the body (c’mon everybody, it is time to dance - just follow the children who have no qualms about dancing to these artists), and anybody looking for a unique and creative event that is entirely put together by local artists and creators who are looking to increase the artistic and imaginative culture in Bethel, CT.
For additional information about the event, interviews, book information and more, please contact Marc Moorash at 832 515 9539
