The month of June marks the beginning of a most welcome addition to the Natchitoches arts and literary scene. “Literary June” was a series of literary and poetry readings held at Natchitoches’ Storybook Café’ intended to spotlight Central Louisiana writers and poets. There were four readings throughout the month in which featured writers and poets would present their works to an audience at the café. There was also an open mic in which anyone could come up and present. The series has proved quite popular, filling the Storybook Café to capacity.
Literary June got the series off to a strong start. It will be followed by Literary July as monthly events unfold in the future. These events are a superb way to encourage local talent and showcase local writers and poets!
