Join Us On May 15th For Michael Heald & Nic Esposito
We know you haven’t heard much from us about the 215 Festival since last fall’s triumphant return, but worry not: We’ve been quietly grinding away on bringing you an even better one next fall. And as of this week, we’ll be officially getting back in the swing of things, not least by welcoming two authors to the upstairs room at Standard Tap next Wednesday night. And though their styles and topic matter may be different, we think both Portland’s Michael Heald and Philly’s own Nic Esposito have a lot in common. Heald is an essayist of the Dyer/Klosterman mode, who can take up personal history and pop culture as easily and engagingly as he can pieces on running; he also heads up Portland’s DIY Perfect Day Publishing. Esposito is a community-minded urban farmer who spun his own story of fighting blight into the novel Seeds Of Discent; he’s also at the core of Fishtown’s The Head & The Hand Press, which is part publisher and part writer’s workshop. Join us for a great evening of reading and socializing.
