IWOSC Reads Its Own

Vroman's Bookstore

695 E. Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91101


IWOSC Reads Its Own is a spellbinding afternoon of eclectic, eccentric, and exemplary works — from poems to true stories to hilarious monologues and beyond, read aloud by distinguished IWOSC scribes. Fifteen of IWOSC's talented member writers will read short excerpts from their work.  We'll be regaled with their wit, have our emotions stirred, or be plunged into deep thought.  First-time and return readers will share their work.  Selections may be published, unpublished, or works in progress, several minutes in length. For more information, see www.iwosc.org or contact [email protected].
