January 14 Premiere reading a thrilling success

Last night’s debut of Why There Are Words exceeded expectations — it was standing room only! Watch this space for photos. Meanwhile, here are a few email comments from those in attendance:

Welcoming the crowd
  • Now I know why there are words.
  • I have never, in all my years now of writing and reading, seen so many people show up to a reading exempting when the biggest guns, like Billy Collins and Robert Hass, give readings. And what a respectful, attentive crowd. Honestly, it was just about ideal from all I could see.
  • Professional.
  • The roster was so consistently skillful, from the introductions to the readings.
  • Fantastic evening.
