The Coffin Factory shouts out Sundays @ The Sackett

@CoffinFactory makes us think we're on to something with our new reading series.


We’re thrilled that The Coffin Factory reviewed the launch of Sundays @ The Sackett.

One of the most interesting components of this reading, which is much different than the usual, was that all the authors read works in progress and, at the end of each reading, the audience was invited to comment on the pieces.  The discussions were interesting and fruitful… The listeners were engaged and eager to contribute and to be involved; even participants who didn’t consider themselves “literary people,” offered useful commentary on these developing works….  All the authors graciously welcomed the audience’s thoughtful commentary, discussions which carried on long after the reading was over.

You can read the entire review here.
