Weekend Author Slam

One of my favorite streets in Madison, Wisconsin is Monroe Street, downtown near the university campus. It features some amazing independently owned stores. My personal favorites are:
Strictly Discs (awesome vinyl collection)
A Stone’s Throw (fashion boutique)
Barriques (a wine and coffee shop–my two favorite beverages available in one place)

Last year, a new bookstore opened on Monroe Street, A Mystery To Me, and I made a mad dash to check it out. It’s a great space, and has a passionate owner who loves to bring authors and readers together. This weekend, Mystery to Me is featuring a local author slam and I highly recommend you stop by if you live in the Madison area.

I will be going on at 6:45 on Friday night (the slam is going on Thursday-Saturday). Basically, an author takes the stage for 15 minutes which includes a short reading and a few words…that way lots of authors can participate. Please stop by, show your support and get inspired!

    You can’t imagine how much I wish to live in the US right now. Sometimes living in Germany isn’ nice since all the cool people live in the US. I’d really, really like to come but I can’t :(
    The name of the book store’s pretty awesome. In Germany the owners of a book store often name it for their own name which is boring.
    However, a lot of fun to all the people who’ll visit “A Mystery To Me” on Friday!
