Local Literature – Live!

Local writers will take their turn at the microphone on Thursday, July 18, at 7 p.m. at The Georgia Shrimp Co. and Murph’s Bar in Peachtree City. The reading is a culmination of the first True Story! Writers Workshop held at Peachtree City Library on July 13 led by Kate Sweeney, co-founder and curator of the popular True Story! nonfiction reading series.

Murph's Bar

True Story! readings have been held bi-monthly at Kavarna in Decatur since 2009, where rogue writers and nervy journalists have shared true tales along with actual artifacts (think show & tell for grown-ups).

The line-up for next Thursday includes FW cover girl Tricia Stearns and blogger Kristi Hellenbrand – as well as yours truly!

Don’t worry if you’re not an academic – we’re there to have fun. So come out and support your local writers and enjoy the food, service, and atmosphere at The Georgia Shrimp Co. and Murph’s Bar, located in the Peachtree Crossing Shopping Center at 100 N Peachtree Parkway near Fresh Market. The reading will take place in Murph’s Bar, which features a delicious tapas menu as well as a host of adult beverages.

There is no cover charge for the literary reading.
