#YeahYouWrite travels east to South Edison Restaurant
April 21, 2018: #YeahYouWriteMONTAUK with Téa Obreht, Susan Bruce, Matthew Quinn Martin, Céline Keating, & Alice Kaltman
East End authors Susan Bruce, Alice Kaltman, Céline Keating & Matthew Quinn Martin; special NYC guest Téa Obreht; and a talented cast of local authors (see below) took Montauk by literary storm this spring Saturday!
Téa reads from her forthcoming novel. Her #LiteraryCocktail was the Easy, Tiger, designed in honor of The Tiger's Wife.
Susan brings theatre to the stage when she reads her poetry. Heiress of Vodka, her #LiteraryCocktail, conveyed the essence of the title poem of her collection, Body of Water.
Matthew Quinn Martin
Matt reads from his upcoming novel and enjoys a Blood & Flesh, an homage to his vampire series, Night Life.
Céline reads from her novel in progress. Her Sweet to the End, a spiked & spicy hot Mexican Chocolate in honor of her contribution and co-editorship of On Montauk: A Literary Celebration, was a hit with her and our guests.
Alice reads from Wavehouse, her YA novel set in a fictitious east end surfing town, to be released in June 2018. Her #LiteraryCocktail? In the House.
Contributors to On Montauk and one traveler from London (Evalyn Lee) shared their poetry and prose. From top to bottom row, left to right: Tom Oleszczuk, Tom, Patria Baradi Pacis, Patria, Nanci LaGarenne, Heidi Rain, Gert Murphy, Heidi, Evalyn Lee, Dave Davis, Bill Akien, Bill.
