"I've read my fiction at many events, but nothing is quite like Rough&Ready.  

The best part is you truly never know who's going to take the stage next.

A novelist reading an excerpt? A lyricist debuting an original song? Seven  actors reading aloud a scene from a screenplay? A guitarist performing a solo? memoirist reading a work in progress? Yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes.

The most vanishing venue in the arts is the salon, but Rough&Ready is doing more than keeping it alive - it's reinventing the form every month."
