Hard working, happy people
read fiction and poetry.
The NeonLit Reading Series features writers from UNLV's Masters of Fine Arts program. Kathryn Kruse, a short fiction writer and community organizer began the monthly program in 2009. Since the beginning it has drawn standing room only crowds to downtown Las Vegas art galleries. The readings reflect the diverse student body and offer the opportunity to hear a wide variety of fiction and poetry.
Readers this month:
- Ethan Boatright
- Tim Buchanan
- Austin Ely
- Angelo Ligori
- Elee Oak
- Kate Shapiro
- Ariana Turiansky
... and our MC is Kristian Einstman.
Where: The Writer's Block, 1020 Fremont St. #100, Las Vegas, NV 89101
When Friday, October 21. Doors open at 6:00 PM, reading starts at 7:00 PM.
This month's Neon Lit will feature a raffle to contribute to the legal defense of Standing Rock water protectors resisting the Dakota Access Pipeline. Raffle proceeds, as well as drink donations, will support the Water Protector Legal Collective, which directly aids and represents those protecting sacred land, water, and human rights at Standing Rock Reservation. Spiritual and cultural camps at Standing Rock protest the Dakota Access Pipeline through non-violent direct action. Arrests of water protectors by police are ongoing.
