Zoom Forward Reading Series: Dion O'Reilly, Maggie Paul, Gary Young

Friday, March 27, 2020 - 6:00pm

Phren-Z, The Hive Poetry Collective, and Bookshop Santa Cruz present the Zoom Forward Reading Series—an ongoing reading series to showcase writers, keep our cultural spritits high, and support Bookshop Santa Cruz.

The Zoom Forward Reading Series is designed to bring public readings back to life through the use of Zoom Meetings that can host up to 100 participants per event. The first events will be experimental, as folks learn how to use Zoom to join meetings, check their audio and video connections, and adapt to this new way of commuications. If you join a meeting, be patient as we learn together.

Please join Dion O'Reilly, Maggie Paul, and Gary Young as they read from their latest work during our first Zoom Forward online reading.
