ABOUT THE EVENT /
The Table Reading Series is a collection of twelve reading events. Held once per month, for twelve months, each event will be as diverse as the writers who host and imagine them.
Executive produced by Natashia Deón, series’ hosts will be invited to create and curate a reading event that will consists of no more than six readers and will be as diverse in subject matter as it is in contributors. The hosts will be given an event space and will create a theme for their assigned evening. Curators who are new to planning readings, will be mentored through the process from time management, budgeting and basic costs, to creating promotional materials, inviting readers and guests, working with volunteers, and more.
The goal of The Table is to help raise up the next generation of writers and readers to be actively engaged in the writing community; to invest in them, give them a space to begin, to reach new or estranged writers in Los Angeles, and to provide fresh outlets for writers and fans to engage and contribute to the vibrancy of the Los Angeles literary community.
