Our next third Monday gathering falls on  August 19, 7pm at Honey at Alma Mater (1322 Fawcett, Tacoma). *there will be no open mic for this gathering*

Creative Colloquy lures readers and writers out of hiding, to connect and conspire.
Come imbibe in roasted bean concoctions, craft brews and vino varietals as we gather to listen to writers narrate their tales.

Celebrate our rad literary community with us at the 4th annual CC Summer Soirée.

This gathering serves as both an excellent opportunity to connect and conspire with fellow lovers of the written word and as a fundraiser with proceeds benefitting the Creative Colloquy Crawl!
The shenanigans will take place in the beautiful Alma Mater green space, outside.

Festivities include:

*Live music provided by Forest Dogs
*Live readings from: Christina Butcher, Troy Kehm-Goins, Erik Carlsen and Daniel Wolfert
*Refreshments provided by Happy Belly and a no host bar
& a silent auction abundant with swag, art and food.

FREE, open to all and all ages!

Prior to the Soirée at 6 pm, CC will facilitate a book discussion around the themes of identity, multi-generational trauma, family, and belonging articulated in Tommy Orange’s bestselling debut novel, and official Tacoma Reads selection for 2019, “There, There.” Tommy Orange will NOT be in attendance.
