Fray Day 7 Tucson: Tucson VENUE/DATE CHANGE
Posted by Cia on Tuesday 26 August 03 @ 7:26PM

Poet, writer, and kickass storyteller Maggie Golston has generously offered her gem of a bookstore, Biblio, for Saturday October 4 so we have taken her up on it! Join us at 7 pm on October 4 at Biblio (at 222 E. Congress between 5th and 6th Avenues), with AZSessions kicking off a spin at 7 and featured performers starting at 8. We hear there may be storytelling musical performances by local legends... Blame it on the torrential monsoon outside that blew the power at Biblio, but we had a great meeting that was so out-of-the-box it was, well, orbital...

The place is Galapogos in billyburg; the date is Sunday the 5th of October; the time is 9:30pm.

Fray Day 7 Central Florida: Fray Day comes to Florida
Posted by Andy on Sunday 24 August 03 @ 12:02PM

We're pleased to announce that Fray Day will make its debut in Florida this year. We'll gather Thursday, October 2, from 8 p.m. until midnight in the historic yet funky Stover Theatre on the campus of Stetson University.

Stetson is in DeLand, halfway between Orlando and Daytona Beach off of I-4, and not that far away from Gainesville and other places; the theatre is located right off 17-92/Woodland Blvd. To get here, follow the directions to the university, except after passing Minnesota and the main gate, turn left on University and navigate around the tennis courts to the grass parking lot in front of the theatre.

We hope many Floridians (and visitors) will make the trek. If you have any questions, please let me know.

By the way, Nancy Barber and I will be hosting the event, along with Poetry at an Uncouth Hour (the weekly open mic event sponsored by the university's literary magazine, Touchstone), and with the help of the Sullivan Endowment for Writing.
